first frost nasturtium earrings

44.00

I decided to play with some shapes and vary from the perfect circle I have been using for so long. I took my inspiration from some nasturtium plants I had been growing on the fire escape. The irregular shape of the leaves intrigued me as I watered them day after day and with them in mind I stretched and hammered some perfect circles into a more organic shape. My colors are often inspired by nature and they take so well to this unusual leaf shape.

I make a more organic shape out of the silver discs then the earrings are filled with crushed glass. Once the surface is well coated I torch fire the disc to fuse the crushed glass to the silver creating an even surface. I repeat the process until the surface of the silver is well covered in a rich hue. After I solder posts on I add a satin finish to the silver back and make the edges shine. The final pieces are just about 10mm.

These first frost earrings are the palest shade of green, just how grass looks under the first frost of the season.
