THE TECHNIQUE

The creation of Ester Bijoux’s unique crafting process takes 5 weeks. The harvesting of the leaves takes place in March and April, when they are green and their structure solid and easy to be treated. The leaves are consequently kept inside presses that remove the humidity. Once completely dried, the leaves are dipped in galvanic baths and covered with a thin copper layer. This process solidifies the leaves while preserving their intricate details. The final layer is achieved through a pink or yellow gold bath or silver bath (up to 3,2 micron). All materials and components comply with the applicable regulations set by the EC.
