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.
Sterling & copper -- hammer formed, 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 that will continue to develop and warm over time.
DIMENSIONAL, textural, natural & ethereal -- probably the most elegant earring design I've ever concocted.
These move gorgeously.
Earring length: about 2.75 inches
Built to last.
Made with love.
Created to hand down to the generations next.
I love your soul.
