    Default Maki-e...spectacular pair!

    I caught the Maki-e bug and jumped at the sight of them...that’s in Cee’s IG feed that is! I believe I was barely awake when I spotted them! These pair are now on its way to moi, after Sarah from Oceanscove applied her craftsmanship and added a pair of 18KYG eye pins to convert into earring jackets. I plan on wearing them with my Kiki hoops!

    Thank you everyone for your nice comments! I should be getting them by Monday, that is if the hurricane doesn’t come our way and will post additional pictures!

    Linda.wald, I’ve learned a ton about pearls on this forum. Here’s what I learned about this technique:
    “quote”
    Maki-e is a paint technique developed 1,000 years ago during the Edo period in Japan. Lacquer is applied to surfaces and then powdered gold or silver paint is mixed in for various flat or raised ornamentations. In pearls, they typically feature tiny abalone tiles that are often accented by designs rendered in the same 24k powered gold paint used to create maki-e pearls.

    Knowing me, now I want a collection of them sights!!
