Change always involves a dark night when everything falls apart. Yet if this period of dissolution is used to create new meaning, then chaos ends, and new order emerges.
-Margaret J Wheatley

edition: limited edition of 100
made of: silver, 24k , vitreous enamel
measurements: The earrings measure one inch long, including the ear wire. The enameled disc itself is one half of an inch in diameter, and there is a small clip on the reverse for secure closure of the ear wire.
process: The enameling process for making these earrings is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the silver forms in tiny cells called “cloisons” (the process is called cloisonné) and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Tiny fragments of 24k gold, the stars, are fused into the enamel during firing as well.
