Sterling Silver Laos Dangle Earrings
These unique sterling silver dangle earrings are sure to turn heads. 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 soldered to a base of thicker strands of silver woven together like fabric.
