Sterling silver lavender chalcedony accents forged and textured silver posts to create beautiful purple silver earrings. Modern lines with delicate details, these wonderfully textured earrings are inspired by the endless fields of French Lavender. 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.
Organically forged in sterling silver, the Lavender Fields earrings celebrate the exquisite details of nature’s inherent beauty. Hand forged and textured, these contemporary earrings are a delightful mix of textures and movement, reflecting purple and silver shadows.
Lavender Fields measure 2.7 inches in length.
Note from the Artist
I make these textured purple 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 Lavender Fields I am inspired by the tenacity of nature and the reflection of that triumph in our lives.

Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the texture in Lavender Fields 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 Lavender Fields.
