I work with a combination of plastic and resin to achieve a shiny glass-like finish. However, unlike glass the earrings are nearly weightless and you’ll probably forget you have them on!
I’ve encased the image in a dome of resin for protection and to create a subtle three-dimensional quality. It is a meticulous process that I’ve developed over the years. It involves several layers of resin, a lot of sanding, and takes at least a week from start to finish. In my studio I’m always surrounded by hundreds of little resined gems and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Although the front of the earrings are most important, I’ve paid close attention to the backs as well. I embed the sterling silver posts in a slight dome of resin that not only prevents them from popping off, but also makes the earrings comfortable to wear against the ear.
• Disk diameter: slightly under .5" (11mm)
