    Curated Jewelry Show: Debby Park
    Debby Park

    Debby Park is an Atlanta-based artist for whom jewelry design and construction form a significant part of her life and add a healthy balance to her computer science career. She is a member of the executive board of Georgia Goldsmiths Group.

    These earrings are suitable for both casual and formal occasions. They have a splash of color, a dash of gold and silver, and a hint of Asian design, which is achieved through traditional metalsmithing techniques. The silver for these earrings is processed and heated so that the interior of the metal flows before the surface does, resulting in a texture of wrinkles and ridges. A pattern of 24-karat gold is applied to the silver using keum-boo, a Korean gilding technique. Finally, the earrings are exposed to liver of sulfur; the silver reacts to produce an unpredictable combination of gold, blue, green, red, purple, brown, grey, and black. Surface textures, gold patterns, and patina colors vary from piece to piece.
