At the bottom of each word
I’m a spectator at my birth.
Alain Bosquet

made of: silver, copper, 24k, amazonite, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The enameled drops measure just over 1 inch long and are not quite 1/2 of an inch wide. The entire earring, including ear wire, is almost 2.5 inches long.
process: The enameling process for making these earrings is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange tiny fragments of text and imagery from many different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel along with 24k gold to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
