These rockin' earrings are carved from wax and cast in sterling silver. The leopard print center is surrounded by beaded granulation. The squares measure ~12mm and are 4mm thick. They have sterling silver posts soldered on and come with sterling ear nuts.
The Redux version has 24k gold foil applied using the ancient Korean technique of Keum Boo, and the earrings then have a patina applied to enhance the gold. The black tone will fade over time revealing highlights, but the gold lasts forever.
