Granulation is a very old technique, dating back to the Etruscans, where very tiny balls (granules) of fine silver or 22kt gold are fused to a backplate as decorative elements, in intricate designs. I love the technique, but I wanted a more contemporary feel. I didn't want the granules to be mere decoration, but rather an integral part of the piece. So I chose to make large granules and to remove the backplate, fusing the granules only to each other. And, instead of carefully sorting identically sized grains, I decided to mix different sizes and to add a frosted finish.
Each piece is unique - it is impossible to recreate the way the granules interact in these free form pieces.
These earrings have hypoallergenic fine silver posts and come with commercial earnuts.
