Have you ever wondered how your favorite pieces were made? This week, we are taking you on the journey of jewelry making! Learn more on how your favorite Morocco Ear Climbers from Bonito Jewelry are made - here we go!
STEP 1 : Cutting and Hammering
STEP 2 : Shaping and measuring the face of the piece
STEP 3 : Assembling the parts
STEP 4 : Shaping the back of the earring
STEP 5 : Brushing and Cleaning
STEP 6 : Drying and Polishing
Gold plated jewelry pieces are made with a layer of gold on the surface over 925 sterling silver. The cleaning process in steps 5 and 6 will improve adherence, making sure dust and dirt don’t interfere with the gold sticks to the jewelry piece.
STEP 7 : Gold Plating
With time, temperature and voltage carefully controlled, the piece is submerged into the plating solution to attract ions of gold on the 925 sterling silver base. The plating thickness can be controlled by adjusting the immersion time in the plating tank. All of our jewelry is gold plated in 18ct Gold, with at least 2 microns.
Our rings are gold plated with 3 micron, making all of them Gold Vermeil--a thicker layer of gold to make it last longer! There is also a layer of ceramic coating to help protect your jewelry.
STEP 8: Rinsing and Drying
Rinsing off the pieces with water and then hanging them to dry preferably not touching each other for optimal results.
The Morocco Ear Climbers from Bonito Jewelry are handmade by talented local artisans in Bali, Indonesia, supporting full time jobs and the continuation of this artistic tradition.
