Spalted Maple and Gold-Filled Inlay Large Curved Earrings
Spalted Maple is a wood that has gone through the spalting process – which created color changes and black rivulets in the wood for fascinating shapes and patterns. These earrings have been sculpted in asymmetrical shapes, based in awareness of the patterns in the wood.
These earrings are mirror images of each other, to add variety in wear, depending on which earring goes in which ear! The wood is combined with gold-filled inlay and hand-forged, gold-filled ear wires. They are large yet very lightweight.
– Length of earrings: 2 1/4″
– Dimensions of wood: approximately 1 3/4″ 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.
