Inspiration for her earrings for the CCBC Earring Show roots in long walks along the Seawall in Vancouver during the pandemic. She observes waves coming from the distance and crashing against rocks. Every wave reminds her that there is always something new coming our way. The shape of the earrings reflects organic uniqueness of rocks while incorporating faceted aquamarine gemstones evokes freshness of the crashing waves. All aspects of the one-of-a-kind earrings are handmade from sterling silver including hand-sawed panels, formed wire frames, earwire and headpins for aquamarine gemstones.
