Ginkgo leaf earrings … A ginko leaf is a beautiful simple form, and also elegant in shape. It is therefore the inspiration for this pair of earrings. The ginkgo shape is sawn out of 1mm thick silver sheet. The earrings themselves are approximately 2.5cm by 2cm each, in size. Also, the ginkgo leaf is soldered to a handmade silver wire, which is formed into a hook to make the earring dangle. Lines have been hand drawn onto the front surface of the earrings.
The Chinese have know of the healing properties of the ginkgo leaves for more than a 1000 years. To read more, check out Kew botanical gardens
