Single Flower Sterling Silver Laos Earrings

These sterling silver dangle earrings have drop perfectly from your ear.   Handmade in Laos, the Dog Phikoun Flower is the centerpiece to this work of art. The Dok Phikoun Flower is thought to assure good health and fortune. To create this flower, sterling silver is hand run through a flattener until it becomes a very fine silver wire.  Next the fine wire is run through a spindle to create the petals to the flower. As the center of the flower is being melted, the spiral has to be uniformly cut by hand to be heated and adjoined with a very tiny silver beaded centerpiece. Then a single flower is surrounded by smaller flowers and soldered to a petal base.

Handmade by a Laos artist
