Let the sun fall in your cupped hand.
Today, be only this:
the thing that holds the light.
Humans have been enjoying honey for at least 40,000 years and its healing properties are well known. These earrings are a celebration of this history, showcasing an illustration that is several hundreds of years old in the trapezoid copper panels.
made of: silver, 24k, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The enameled panel measures almost 1.25 inches long and is 9/16ths of an inch wide. The entire earring, including the sterling ear wire, is just over 2 inches long. The handmade ear wire 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. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange tiny fragments of 24k gold, text and imagery from many different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
