granite and black moss lichen earrings

44.00

This collection of necklaces is inspired by my hiking adventures in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I am forever amazed at the colors I see on the trail. Bright orange mushrooms, florescent green lichen and black lichen accent granite colored rocks. No matter how many hikes I take, I find something new and magical. The journey isn't only about getting to the summit, every step I take on the trail brings me towards a new, beautiful adventure, full of details to enjoy.

Dot earrings are made by sifting crushed glass onto a dapped disc of fine silver. 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. Once I achieve a rich color I solder a post to the back of these simple earrings and add a satin finish to the backs, a nice contrast to the shiny enamel. These earrings measure 3/8 of an inch and include sterling silver ear nuts.
