The things we now esteem fixed, one by one, detach themselves like ripe fruit from our experience and fall…The soul looketh steadily forwards, creating a world before her, leaving worlds behind her.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

These earrings showcase an unusual antique image of Adam offering Eve an apple.
edition: one-of-a-kind
made of
: silver, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The earrings measure 2.75 inches long and 1 inch wide, including the sterling silver handmade kidney ear wire (one inch long) that closes 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.
