Abstract Antiqued Layered Sterling Silver Cast Post Earrings – Domes
These post/stud earrings, with a “dome”-like shape (rounded on the top), 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 them! After casting, the silver is cleaned up, then antiqued to give a darker tone and to emphasize the depth of each earring. The posts are sterling silver with traditional backs.
The earrings measure 1/4″ in diameter (approximately).
All of my work is handmade, using recycled materials whenever possible, and incorporating/re-using gemstones and vintage pieces.
