This is the design of the earrings, I initially planned on having snowflake made of multiple stones instead of a single gemstone for earrings, I simplified the design for time reasons but I think that they are nicer this way finally.
I was able to learn the technique of chasing and repoussè during the process, it is a technique that forms the metal with the use of chasing tools (like the ones you see on the picture), a hammer, a bowl of black pitch and a ton of patience
In this technique you work booth from behind and from the front of the pieces
and here there are the final earrings.
The gemstones are rutilated quartz, I think that they really convey a “Ice Feeling”, with the golden lines almost freezed in place.
Do you like them? let me know.
