pollen 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.

After I make a more organic shape 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 and come with sterling silver ear nuts. These look like a delicate blue petal with orange pollen sprinkled over it.
