reverie and cosmos


At the bottom of each word
I’m a spectator at my birth.
Alain Bosquet

Each turban is dotted with 24k gold…

made of
: silver, copper, 24k, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: Without the ear wires, the earrings measure just over an inch and a half long and 1/2 of an inch wide. The handmade ear wire is about an 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.
