The gardenia is one of my favorite flowers, and it’s smell immediately takes me back to my youth.
The flowers were created using an ancient sculpting technique called chasing and repousse, a technique dating back nearly 5000 years. The images are created entirely by hand using a hammer and small blunt tools, pushing the metal from behind to create depth and sculpting the images from the front.
These sterling silver earrings are approximately 3/4 inch in diameter and are 1-1/2 inches long. They hang from handmade sterling silver earwires.
