The gold earrings in that picture look fold formed. The metal looks
very thin which would aid the process. I have never heard of fold
forming in ancient times but that is sure what it looks like to me.
Marilyn, the earrings are made of two boat-shaped pieces, soldered
together side-by-side – I think that’s what makes it look as if
it were fold-formed. My question is, how were the two “boats”
(which are bulbous at the bottom and which neck in at the top)
made in the first place? (Yes, the gold is thin.) --Judy Bjorkman
