Our Ekby Drop Earrings are a modern, lightweight design crafted using wood and poured resin. This abstract design is made by pouring resin with wood set inside to create a contrast finish and suspended on a nickel-free shepards hook. Our wooden jewellery is handcrafted from sustainable plantation timber and made in Cebu, Philippines, by a family owned workshop who have collaborated with ELK since 2004.
MATERIAL & MAKERS NOTES
This piece of jewellery is made entirely by hand by Zai Design Hive, a family run operation in the Phillipines. We have been working with Gil and his team since 2016. They specialise in making jewellery from quality resin, wood and other mostly natural materials. All pieces are made by skilled craftspeople in a factory that we visit annually. The wood is sourced from sustainable plantation timbers and the resin pieces are made by pouring liquid resin into silicone moulds which is then left to cure.
Each piece is then cleaned, drilled and polished. Resin is extremely durable, light and isn't affected by liquids.
Resin & Wood
Avoid water and other liquids, do not store in direct sunlight. If milky spots or marks appear due to contact with liquid they can be removed and the original appearance restored using ELK's jewellery wax or another suitable natural polish.
