teal sea glass, gold filled bezel wire and ear wires

sterling silver backing and links, gold filled bezel wire is wrapped around each piece of glass to fit, cut and soldered closed. Each bezel is then soldered to the flat sheet of sterling silver. Backing is cut, filed and finished on edges before sterling links are soldered to each piece and linked to its neighbours. Hand made gold filled ear wires are soldered to the top. The earrings are cleaned and polished before setting each piece of sea glass in its spot; Embracing imperfection.

Accepting that which may not live up to standards that have been set by others and instead celebrating the beauty within.

Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken objects with gold is a metaphor for embracing flaws and imperfections. The artist has used gold filled bezel wire and round wire to wrap less than perfect sea glass in gold there by embracing it's rough angles and accentuating the beauty of its individual colour and pattern.
