Indonesian Petrified Opalized Wood Drop Earrings in 14k Gold and Sterling Silver, Kintsugi
Glorious Opalized Wood gemstones from Indonesia reminiscent of ocean views, with shades of blue, green, and gold. Natural copper and opal inclusions flicker within these vibrant slices of petrified wood. Set into sterling silver, accented with 14k gold prongs and bails, and hanging from solid 14k gold handmade ear wires. Impossibly lightweight.
These earrings feature a Kintsugi repair--Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with gold. It treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. After one stone fractured during the setting process, I joined the two pieces with solid 24k gold and jeweler's repair medium.
Stones measure: 29×11×3mm
Total drop length: 1.75"
