These sterling silver earrings feature impressions from Ginkgo leaves. Ginkgo leaves are symbols for strength and longevity. Pressed, dried Ginkgo leaves were fed through a hand-cranked rolling mill along with a sheet of sterling silver, leaving the texture of the leaf perfectly imprinted into the silver. The shapes were drawn and sawed out by hand. They have been polished to a crisp shine and have a gentle convex curve to them.
This version of Ginkgo earring measure just over 1 the widest point and 2 inches in length, measured from where the ear wire inserts into your ear. The Ginkgo leaves are attached directly to stiff, handmade sterling silver ear wires. They offer a nice, dramatic hang but without a lot of movement.
Your earrings arrive in a lovely gift box with a story card that lists materials. A polishing sheet is included. The package is already for gift-giving to that special someone….including you. Shipping is free.
