Earrings #6455 by Janet Rubenstein
These stunning earrings were handmade by Janet Rubenstein of Grosse Pointe, Michigan.
They are made of fine silver and are adorned with 24k gold leaf using a gilding technique called keum boo. They have sterling silver French ear wires.
The earrings measure approximately 2.25" long.
I love making jewelry.
I particularly love taking an idea, turning it into a design that I can then cut, file, forge and heat, creating pieces that feel intimate, intense and organically “right”, in the emotional sense of that word.
All of my work is constructed of solid sterling or fine silver. Sometimes I use other metals and materials as accents. I strive to keep my approach fluid to allow the pieces to stay fresh and engaging.
The pieces shown here are the results of that exploration. I hope you enjoy them.
