Mirielle Pearson is an artist who works across a variety of disciplines such as jewellery, sculpture, audio-visual, and various forms of multimedia. Pearson often draws her inspirations from Shakespeare's extravagant world of theater to create work that is novel and unexpected, wanting to steer away from the stereotypical. Her ideas often flow from one medium to another, mixing with past works and current obsessions. Pearson's process begins with notes and designs splattering and overflowing onto the pages of her sketchbook bursting with ideas that will become the foundation for future projects.

In Stones and Daggers, Mirielle Pearson, with use of copper, brass, silver and red cubic zirconia (CZ's) creates a pair of earrings that she hopes evoke one's childhood daydreams of worlds of fantasy and wonder. Utilizing techniques such as scoring, doming, sawing, soldering and tube setting Pearson creates a three-dimensional piece replicating that of a sword or daggers scabbard. For finishing, jacks black, burnishing and the use of directional sanding disks are used to create texture and give depth to the earrings. 

Through her art, Mirielle Pearson hopes to abstractly and figuratively create pieces that lie between reality and illusion, as well as evoke wonder and curiosity through the theatrical use of colour, light, form, and presentation.
