- Cork finish

These stylish earrings have been crafted using a metal base that has then been wrapped in a cork finish. Gold foil speckles have been placed throughout the cork creating a distinctly unique look that pays homage to ELK's love of contrasting yet complementary materials.
The works of modern day artists Susan Forsyth influenced the Cork Finish Studs and its shimmer detail. Susan's sculptures are often coated in gold leaf and these shining pieces inspired us to design a necklace dedicated to her use of this most delicate material in some incredibly large scale works.
Material & Makers Notes
This style is designed by our team in Melbourne and made at a Chinese factory that is managed by Korean company Cielo Sereno. Cielo is owned and operated by Eun Hee Kim who we know as Olive. She is an incredible creative with a young family who established her business in 2004 after she studied at Central Saint Martins' School of Fashion in London.
We use a variety of techniques to make this piece, include casting, polishing and high-quality plating. The end result is a super light, fine finish. The factory that it is made in is located in Nanquan, China in the Shandong Province.
As they operate as an agent for us, we are actively working with Olive to increase transparency across the entire operation.
