Crystal Garden Earrings

Gold & Stone Earrings

Created by Nancy Troske
A garden of handcrafted beauty. Ancient granulation brings life to tiny leaf shapes on pure 22k gold caps, which top crystal teardrops embellished with hand-carved floral patterns. 18k gold ear wires.

Granulation takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand, and making enough for one piece of jewelry can take weeks. Each granule is placed one by one using a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one with the item being granulated. The technique is evident in museum collections featuring ancient jewelry.

22k gold won't dull or tarnish. Simply gentle dip into soapy water to clean; pat dry.
