Sterling Silver Ginkgo Leaf and Lampwork Earrings by Laura Bracken (Available for Shipping or Local Pick-Up)

Only 1 left in stock



Local artist Laura Bracken created these earrings using traditional metalsmithing techniques.

She started wtih a plain sheet of ethically sourced sterling silver and she annealed it which means softening the metal by applying a torch, like a blow torch.

After the metal is soft enough, Laura uses a rolling mill to permanently impress the design into the sterling silver. She uses a jeweler's saw to cut out the shape then adds a patina to emphasize the recessed areas of the metal. The final step is polishing the metal and adding the handmade lampwork glass beads and earwires.

These earrings can be picked up at the gallery in Auburn, CA or the artist can ship them to you for free (domestic shipping only).  If you've purchased these and want to have them shipped to you, please click here to give your mailing address to the artist.
