This listing is for a pair of asymmetric studs: one large 5 leaf earring and one single small stud earring.
The earrings are a part of our “leaf” collection. All the leaves are hand-cut from a thin silver sheet and hammered on surface to create leaf grain pattern. Leaves were then soldered one to another to create the final shape of the earring, which can be worn as a single piece or in combination with a single small leaf stud on the other ear. Despite the size, the large stud earring is lightweight (approx. 10g). We created several different earrings, as well as brooches in the same series.
Our silver products are created in 95-98% Silver which is typical of the Thai Karen hill-tribe artisans, who have been using traditional tools and techniques for centuries. 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 earrings will be sent in a traditional Thai package that can be a lovely gift or just simply jewelry storage. We send all our packages with tracking number for safer shipping.
