Note from the Artist
I made these kyanite sterling silver 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 Kyanite Scrolls I am inspired by the tenacity of nature and the reflection of that triumph in our lives.
A spiculum is a curved tubular segment found in many creatures and plants throughout the world. Bursting forth in every environment imaginable, life grows in a myriad of shapes and sizes. From the tiniest cellular organism to the mightiest redwood tree, the multitude of varying forms is fascinating. Linear lines of forged textures draw the eye, while the gorgeous patina highlighting the polished details elegantly reflects the light of the shimmering blue kyanite cabochons.
Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the texture in Kyanite Scrolls 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 Kyanite Scrolls.
