Vines & Tendrils Earrings
Forged & polished steel, sterling silver, pale green/white freshwater pearls
From the Old World Vines Collection, inspired by two time honored traditions of elegance: the reverence for ancient wine vines and the opulent practice during the Baroque period of gilding everything with pure gold…and in this case pure fine silver. Hand-forged from mild steel, given a black heat patina, and gilded with pure fine silver. The pure fine silver is applied to the steel to give it a historical feel, as though it has been around for centuries. It is then sprayed with Permalac, a micro fine protectant which bonds to the metals protecting it from time and the elements. The length listed is the length of the drop of the front element. As with all Valerie’s neckpieces, it is formed to rest comfortably flowing over the curves of a woman’s neck and shoulders.
