Spalted Maple and Silver Large Triangle Earrings
These fun, lightweight, triangular earrings are made from Spalted Maple – maple wood that has undergone the “spalting” process. It’s been allowed to begin initial stages of decay, and then stabilized. This creates the black streaks and lighter colors in the wood, creating unusual rivulets and color changes!
Fine silver has been added in a geometric inlay, to accentuate the shape of the hand-carved and sanded wood. Hand-forged sterling silver ear wires are added to complete the earrings.
- Length of earrings: 1 1/2″
- Dimensions of wood: 5/8″ long x 1/2″ wide
All my wood jewelry is sealed with wax for a fine shine and protection.
All of my work is handmade, using recycled materials whenever possible, and incorporating/re-using gemstones and vintage pieces.
