Cage earrings - sterling silver drop earrings made with anticlastic forming and depletion gilding techniques.

Anticlastic forming is a traditional silversmithing technique where sheet metal is formed by compressing the middle section and stretching out the edges, creating two curves in opposing directions. 

Depletion gilding is a finishing technique that makes silver turn snow white in colour accomplished through several heat cycles which cause the fine silver content to rise to the surface and turn white. 

5.1 x 1.1 x 2.3 cm, 2021.
