Description

These earrings are enameled in a forest green or ice blue. These are cast from a wax mold of a granulated fern circle made using the ancient technique of precision fusing called granulation. Each piece is cast in sterling silver and then carefully polished, cleaned and packed with wet powdered glass which is then fused in a kiln. The earrings are then sanded and heated in the kiln again and then a final polish and cleaning after attaching a sterling silver forged French hook clasp. These are lightweight with great dangle movement.

I have a innate love of ancient objects and a deep curiosity to understand the process of how they were made. Using ancient techniques, fine materials and a love of history; juicy gems and rich colors dominate my designs.I became fascinated to the point of obsession with the Etruscan process of Granulation, a process that involves tiny spheres formed under heat through colloidal adhesion, precisely placed on a prepared surface of the same material then fused with a torch. Granulation is a very time consuming process. The creation of unique pieces in precious metals is my passion!
