These exquisite earrings are made using a completely new technique to me. New to me as the technique itself is over 9000 years old. It's an old decorative lacquer technique that uses powders of various types sprinkled onto wet lacquer to create the designs. The powders used can be metal powders, kanshitsu-fun, or pigment powders, I use gold and silver powders and I always feel like I'm staring up at the night sky when I look at a Maki-e piece. There's something extremely peaceful and captivating in the way the light reflect around a piece like this. Check out the video on my Insta to see what I'm talking about.

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.
