Winnie Gold, Lace and White Turquoise Earrings
These drop earrings are handmade from white howlite wands held by bands of 1930’s French Valenciennes lace dipped in 24k yellow gold. The Winnie earrings measure 3 inches long by 1/4 inch wide.
The process of handcrafting Gilded Lace jewelry is effort and time-intensive. First, the lace is cut with precision. The edges are sealed by hand-sewing on ribbons. Then the lace is sealed and shaped by dipping it into lacquer and molding it to a final shape.
After a dip in a bath of either sterling silver or 24K gold, The jewelry is filed by hand. Every hole is carefully smoothed to ensure a comfortable fit and that the lace pattern is clearly visible down to the finest detail. The jewelry is then shined and ready to wear.
All Gilded Lace Jewelry by Monika Knutsson is made in limited editions, signed, numbered and handcrafted in the U.S.A.
