These earrings are on RESERVE for Patricia - please don't purchase this listing if you are not Patricia. Thanks!!!

Orchids are intimidating. Although I'm a decent gardener, I've admired them from afar - until last summer a friend gifted me with one as a thank you for a favor that was much more of a pleasure than a chore (you know who you are). That orchid brightened my desk for weeks through the summer, and just before the last blossom faded I saw that the exotic shapes would be wonderful to capture as a little sterling sculpture. Here is the outcome, a dimensional portrait of that orchid fastened to ear wires for wearing through all the seasons. My potted orchid thrives, and just now I see the tiny bud of a new flower spike beginning to emerge...

These orchids are about 1.25" at the base and the entire earring including wire is about 1 5/8" in height. Due to the dimensional nature, these earrings are a bit heavier than most of my designs, but certainly wearable. One earring weights in at 1/8 oz on my kitchen scale. An elegant ear wire with a graceful arc compliments this design snatched from the natural world. Mine seems a shadow of nature's design, but I hope carries within it the same hopeful and enduring spirit.
