I've been inspired by the shape of various lichens with their curling edges and frothy forms.
This is one attempt at mirroring what I'm seeing in nature, here in the Methow Valley of Washington.
These earrings are so elegant and edgy -- like the flat black lichen I see growing on stones when I'm out and about.
Sterling & copper -- textured, oxidized and left mostly black BUT the warmth of the copper still breathes up through the patina giving this metal a really lovely nuanced coloration.
Earring length: 3.5 inches
Built to last.
Made with love.
Created to hand down to the generations next.
I love your soul.
