And if the earthbound forget you,
say to the silent Earth: I flow.
To the rushing water say: I am
Rilke

made of: silver, copper, rare pyritized reverse ammonite (175 million years old), vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The enameled disc measures 1 and 1/8th inches in diameter. The entire earring, including the ammonite, measures 1 and 7/8th 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 fragments of imagery from different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
