a friend more willingly


That time was like never, and like always. 

So we go there, where nothing is waiting; 

we find everything waiting there.
-Pablo Neruda

made of: silver, copper, 24k, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: Without the ear wires, the earrings measure 3/4ths of an inch wide and just over 3/4ths of an inch tall. The handmade ear wires are one inch long and can be fastened securely.
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 to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
