PORTUGUESE

made of: silver, 24k, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The entire earring measures almost two inches long. The bezel-set druzy stone is about a half of an inch wide and the enamel panel is 1.25 inches long and about 5/8ths inches wide.
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.
