Working with gold and silver allows Alexander Vali to experiment with new techniques and to make the most out of three-dimensional forms. Her unique Gold Pod Earrings from her Pearl Pod Collection are handmade from fluid sweeps of Sterling Silver vermeil plated with 18 Karat Gold. Each earring is 1.90" l x 0.40" w x 0.40" d and is accented with silver spheres diamond cut for appealing texture and sparkle. In Aleksandra's own words: "I have always been intrigued and mesmerized by gold. As a jeweler, I set my goal on preserving the pure beauty of the glowing gold. The idea of protective cover started in the form of a shell, but during the creative process it elongated, turning into a natural gold pod. This pendant has soft organic lines, which makes it ever so elegant and feminine."
