Neil continues to engrave these beautiful shakudo earrings. He has an affinity for this material, which is a Japanese alloy formulated for a special patina, often used in decorating swords. Depending on the patina-process it turns from a rich, dark bronze color to dark midnight purple. When Neil engraves in this material he usually polishes off some of the patina on the high points in order to reveal the engraved design.
The checkered line-inlay pattern is meticulously inlaid one line at-a-time. It is incredibly time-consuming, but
gives a very nice effect, and stands in a surprising juxtaposition to the refined scroll-work. These unique and elegant
earrings dress up or down depending on what they are worn with, and the time of day - or night.
The ear-wires are 14K gold.
