Neil is nothing, if not adventurous! He just finished engraving these stunning sterling silver-backed Shakudo earrings w/24K gold line-inlay. They are made in married metal consisting of a sterling silver back, with shakudo - an ancient Japanese metal alloy of 96% copper and 4% gold often used in decorations on Japanese sword fittings - on the front.
The copper-colored Shakudo oxidizes to a dark, purplish black; the engraved lines cut through to the silver backing, which oxidizes to gray or black, and the 24K gold line-inlay stands as a striking contrast to both. The detailed design and elaborate hand engraving, which invites a closer look, is mirrored on the two earrings. The ear-wires are solid 14K gold.
These earrings are truly a unique experiment of ornamentation in the centuries old tradition of gun-style engraving.
