Small tri-color dahlia neckwire

The linear quality of stems and the fullness of flower buds are elements of inspiration. Every item is made by hand using the ancient Korean technique of Kum-boo to bond through heat and pressure thin sheets of 24 karat gold or fine silver to the surfaces of hollow forms. Items having a black patina are dipped in a natural chemical, coloring only the silver and leaving the rich buttery yellow of the gold.
