Part of my Modern Mosaics Collection
Rankaku was the Urushi technique used to create these earrings. Uniquely with the Rankaku technique the white you see is real eggshell. The eggshell is broken, individually shaped and then embedded into the lacquered surface of the piece. Over the following weeks the surface is coated in successive layers of lacquer. Then the surface is sanded back and polished to reveal the unique modern mosaic. For more info on this incredible technique and Urushi in general check out my 'About Urushi' section.
These are exquisite blank and white earrings that pair perfectly with real life. They are super durable and can withstand the day to day knocks and bumps that come with our busy lives. These guys are so strong yet effortlessly wearable and light, so light you'll almost forget they are there!

Each piece, each individual earring is different. We are unique individuals and our jewellery should reflect that! Why settle or normal and ordinary when you're not.
