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
measurements: These miniature sea nymphs measure just over 3/8ths of an inch in diameter.
process: In addition to the hand fabrication of the silver settings, 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. 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.
