The destination cannot be described, /  You will know very little until you get there;  / You will journey blind.

made of: sterling silver, copper, 24K (blindfolds), vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer, natural Brazilian citrine
measurements: The enameled oval measures 1 inch x 3/4ths of an inch. Including the ear wire and the citrine dangle, the earring measures 2 inches long.
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 fragments of imagery from different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel, along with 24k gold, to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
