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 pendant is 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 a bail to the pendants I add a satin finish to the silver back, string it on hand cut chain and solder on a handmade clasp. The final piece is about half an inch "round" and hangs on a 16 inch chain. [If you would like this necklace in a different length please contact me so we can make one that is perfect for you.]

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.
