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. Next, 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.
There are three options in this collection...
Parisian blue is a rich blue hue.
Hydrangea is the brightest blue, just like those summer blooms we yearn for all spring long.
First frost is the palest green, like grass under a thin layer of frost.
