"Finely detailed and expertly crafted!"
After searching the past 4 years to find a replacement for my favorite, and lost, earring from Bali, I came across Sukartina's antique styled earring. Although not exactly like my previous earring from Bali, Sukartina's earring had the same flavor, detailed craftsmanship and the addition of the gold leaf embellishment as my lost earring. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality, workmanship and design of this earring. I was surprised to see that the earring was designed as a 3 dimensional hollow form, rather than as my previously lost earring, a singular sheet of shaped silver. It hangs lower from my lobe than I had expected, but still it is very flattering, elongating to my face and neck and elegant. I'm waiting to see if the silver will tarnish with time giving the earrings a more casual and daily appearance, more similar to my beloved lost earring.
