My silhouette pieces are inspired by elements from nature. The elements are then brought to life by hand-fabrication in my studio, through careful and intentional piercing (sawing), texturing, finishing, and in some cases, the addition of further embellishments. They are made with handmade ear wires, and in the case of some stones, handmade headpins. Gems are added as a final accent.
This pair of earrings features feathers, with included amethyst and teal-hued tourmaline. The amethyst are beautiful and have earthy inclusions – likely hematite or goethite, but potentially other iron ores as well.
These are sterling silver. They have been given a patina and a matte finish to bring out the texture. The total length of these is 2-5/8” including the ear wires.
