Tears of the Sun

Tears of the Sun


Being at ease with not knowing is crucial for answers to come to you.

Eckhart Tolle

made of: sterling silver handmade prong settings, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: these small dangle earrings measure 1 and 1/8th of an inch long and are 5/16ths of an inch wide. The enameled oval by itself is almost 3/4ths of an inch tall by 5/16ths of an wide.
how did I make them? 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 gather 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.
