Eileen Baumeister McIntyre's gilded earrings feature boldly geometric motifs with one-of-a-kind variations that suggest the hand of the maker. To make each pair, she hand-fuses textured pieces of oxidized sterling silver with two waves and a droplet of 24K gold using the Keum Boo technique. Using this ancient Korean gilding process, artisans deplete sterling silver to bring up a thin layer of fine silver and then they apply heat and pressure to bond the metal with thin sheets of gold to make silver-gilt. Handmade on Long Island, New York. Make it a set! Click here for the matching necklace.

“The simple act of slowly getting into the 'zone' usually sparks some kind of creative excitement for me.”

“The shapes and textures of flowers, petals, seeds, vines, and leaves” are what stimulate Eileen Baumeister McIntyre’s creativity. Fortunately, she is able to find natural inspiration aplenty in the extensive organic garden that surrounds her Long Island studio.

Eileen, whose rich art training includes botanical illustration, often begins the creative process by opening up her sketchbook. “The simple act of slowly getting into the ‘zone’ usually sparks some kind of creative excitement for me,” she says. Expressing herself through precious metals in a process that involves hand-carving her jewelry and then casting it into sterling silver, Eileen says her designs are a “celebration of the enduring beauty of nature.”
