Folded leaf - flower petal handmade silver stud earring (E0203)
These simple stud earrings are made of two circular shape silver leaves, folded in half and soldered together in middle line. The posts soldered at the back are in sterling silver, whereas the earring itself is made from 95% silver that we usually use; silver is thinned down to a sheet and the round shapes are cut and then etched on both sides before folding them and soldering into final shape. The surface was etched with the so-called cat-fur technique, typically used by Thai Karen silversmiths.
Simple, delicate and very lightweight, they are easy to wear with anything.
They are also available in partial rose/yellow gold version (see separate listing).
Our products are hand crafted in 95-98% Silver by Thai Karen hill-tribe artisans.
The Karen are a group of ethnic peoples who reside primarily in southern and southeastern Burma and in northern and north-eastern Thailand. Thai and Burmese hill tribes can be traced back to the 12th century when they are said to have originated from Tibet.
With a higher silver content than sterling silver, Karen silver has a weight, bright satin color and feel, all of its own. Every piece is handmade and individual.
The product comes in a traditional Thai packaging and includes tracking number for safer shipping.
