golden leaf earrings

116.00

As a New Englander I can’t help but embrace autumn. The lack of sunlight may seem dreary but with shorter days comes colorful leaves. This time of year one can find me walking on trail with handfuls of leaves. Some leaves are gathered as a way to remember a hike, others are gathered as color studies, some are kept for their shape. Part of these collections end up at my studio strewn across a workbench with my enamels as I test out samples of silver and crushed glass to find which combinations best capture the colors of autumn.

This is the golden collection. Each leaf is hand-cut from a sheet of fine silver, the edges filed and sanded smooth. They are then formed with wooden tools I made myself. I used the same golden base on these then added contrasting green on one pair and orange on the other. These leaves are post earrings, including sterling silver ear nuts, the backs have a satin finish. They measure 5/8” long and 5/16” wide.

happy autumn! hope you enjoy this new collection!
