Black & Gold Series |  Lily Pad Drop Earrings with Black Onyx Stones

Inspired by winter’s quite darkness and summer’s glow I turned to color to create a series that evokes the beauty of opposing sides. In this Black & Gold Series my aim was to create a stark visual contrast, using simple shapes and precious metals.

To incorporate a healthy dose of light, I employed an ancient technique known as KemBoo, a process in which high karat Gold is fused to Silver metal by applying heat and pressure. I then chose to oxidize the silver, creating a black finish and providing that stark contrast to the glow of the gold. 

 

Materials: Silver, 23 Karat Gold Foil, Natural Black Onyx Stone
