Through her work with clay, Aleksandra Vali learned a feel for the perfect shape. Her contemporary Transparent Aftertaste of Summer Earrings, which are 0.75” x 1.0” x 0.25”, are handmade from Sterling Silver and accented with 22 Karat Gold Vermeil. Vermeil is a French word describing sterling silver that is electroplated with a thick plating of 22 Karat gold. This is a chemical process that uses an electrical current to bind the two precious metals together. The Vermeil gold plating contains 3 microns thick of 22 Karat gold. These modern coral-textured earrings from Aleksandra's new Transparent Aftertaste of Summer Collection are lightweight and easy to wear. Technique: carving, casing, and plating. Also available in Oxidized Sterling Silver.
