Embracing Our Connections
Hand forged sterling silver dangle earrings. These earrings measure 2.5 inches from the top of the ear wire, and feature sparkling cubic zirconia accents.
Note from the Artist
I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, granulation, and forging. Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the varying textures in Embracing Our Connections 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 Embracing Our Connections
