Abstract Antiqued Layered Sterling Silver Cast Drop Earrings – Long Angles
These earrings are sculpted first from wax, then cast in molten sterling silver. The design is inspired by roots or vines – tangled and organic. As each sculpted wax piece is destroyed in the casting process, each earring is individually done; so there is purposeful asymmetry to these earrings! After casting, the silver is cleaned up, then antiqued to give a darker tone and to emphasize the depth of each earring. Hand-forged sterling silver ear wires are added.
The earrings measure 1 1/4″ x 1/4″.
All of my work is handmade, using recycled materials whenever possible, and incorporating/re-using gemstones and vintage pieces.
