Sterling silver textured mixed metal earrings encrusted with embossed bronze dangles for a unique textured look. Modern lines with an edgy vibe, these wonderfully textured lightweight earrings are inspired by the steps we take in life’s journey.
Organically forged in sterling silver and bronze, the Embossed Petals textured mixed metal earrings celebrate the spontaneous choices that life brings us, and our experiences every step of the way. Hand forged and textured, these contemporary earrings are a delightful mix of textures and metals, reflecting gold and silver shadows.

Note from the Artist
I make these textured mixed metal earrings entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, granulation, and forging. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Embossed Petals I am inspired by the choices and memories made in our life’s path.
The flowers of the field are a study in determination. Each spire of petals is a declaration for life, and an accomplishment of overcoming all obstacles. The cycle of seed to flower and returning again to seed is a beautiful rhythm of nature’s inherent beauty.
Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the texture in Embossed Petals is no exception. I always approach the creation of texture a bit like a mad scientist. The alchemy of fire, force, and metal is unpredictable and enthralling. Each hammer blow shapes the metal in a new direction. Each pass of a torch runs the risk of artistic implosion, where the metal could sink into a formless mass once more. The thrill of creation is echoed in the rush of artistic freedom with every moment, until the final texture is achieved.
I hope you enjoy Embossed Petals.
