sterling silver, 14k yellow, and rose gold - set with rhodolite, garnet lost wax casting, and hand building

The artist presents a striking pair of earrings that seamlessly blend diverse materials and textures.

The earrings are meant to evoke a sense of transcendence and transformation.

The eclectic stack of textures and materials creates a dynamic visual composition, inviting the viewer to explore the multifaceted layers of meaning within the piece. Enjoying the physical movement of the design concurrently.

In essence, these earrings serve as a testament to the artist's creative vision and technical prowess.
