Ferns have been around on this earth since before the dinosaurs, and their presence in my garden makes me happy. Living fossils have voluntarily established themselves in my garden! I feel privileged. :) In the Victorian age people were crazy for ferns in art and design. It was called Pteridomania or fern-fever.
I made these earrings using Precious Metal Clay. It allows you to capture the fine structure of leaves perfectly. After firing the piece, only pure silver (also called fine silver, 99.9% silver) is left.
The ovals are 1.4 cm in length (just over half an inch) and they dangle from handmade sterling silver ear wires. The pattern may vary slightly from those shown in the picture, as different fern leaves are used for every pair.
