These exquisite earrings are made using the Urushi Haku-e technique which involves the careful application of gold leaf and has been used for 1000s of years to show beauty, preciousness, love and devotion.

Gold Leaf dates back to before the Egyptians. They used it to adorn sculptures and coat the tombs of the deceased Pharaoh's. In Greece, gold leaf was used to decorate accents of statues. In Japan, gold leaf has been used in conjunction with other Urushi Techniques since its discovery. As with all my pieces I take an ancient traditional technique and honour it by using is in a contemporary context. 

 

Measurements: Midi earrings size  2 cm diameter and 9.5cm in length 

Weight: 5 grams per earring !! (about the same as a 20 cent coin)

Made from: Fine silver (999), yellow gold leaf and Urushi Lacquer. 

These can be ordered on a made to order basis and take 4 to 6 weeks plus shipping time.

 

For more info on this incredible technique and Urushi in general check out my 'About Urushi' section. 

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.
