BE-379 Thai Metal Chasing Hoops
These earrings are an example of a new metal chasing technique I studied in Chiang Mai Thailand at the Silver Temple, Wat Sri Suphan in January 2019. The pattern is from the Lanna style of Northern Thailand which is more floral than the Bangkok style in which everything is engulfed in flames. I hand chase the pewter and then decorate with sterling silver wire and cut-outs in my traditional method. Sterling silver earwires. About 1.25 inches tall before the earwires are added. Wears well with BN-280, BN-282, or Bn-283 on the necklace page.
