Story

Shakudo is the Japanese fine art of mixed metals often utilizing human form as well as flora and fauna motifs raised upon the surface of copper. Touches of gold, copper or silver may be present on the high points of the design.

This remarkable jewelry is constructed of decorated parts of ceremonial swords and other items used by the Samurai. Many have now been reborn as jewelry with their exquisite detail and workmanship. This dates to the Meiji period from 1868-1912.

Here a majestic eagle or a hawk alights on a tree branch in bloom. Symbolizing strength or for the hawk boldness, perched on this particular tree, the Paulownia imperialis or princess tree, it refers to represents wishes for a shared and peaceful life.

The roundel is dynamic, it’s composition of a raptor in a natural setting is orchestrated and balanced by harmony of design. The ear wires base is an orb of metals with 14k ear wires added later.

These are weighty but do not pull down the ear lobe excessively. However, if you have very sensitive or delicate ears where weight can be an issue, contact us for guidance.
