Gilded: Horizontal Gold Bar/Textured Drop Earrings
Material(s): Horizontal bars are 24K yellow gold vermeil. Rectangles and french hooks are high polished sterling silver (pictured) or oxidized sterling silver (.925). A set of rubber earring backs are included.

Description/Artist Notes: Vermeil is a type of gold finish that is composed of a thick layer of gold over solid sterling silver. The thickness of the gold portion must be a hefty 2.5 microns.
The rectangles are hammered by hand, for texture and depth. The horizontal bars are raised from the rectangles, adding dimension.
