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. Spruce is an emerald hue with specks of deeper green. My grandmother told me that there were forty shades of green in Ireland. As a child I was mesmerized by this. These earrings remind me of her and how magical she made my life.
