Rustic sterling silver pressed flower earrings feature a delicate beaded embossed flower pattern on softly cupped post earrings. Lightweight sterling silver is embossed in a beautiful floral pattern, then carefully cut to shape and formed, before being patinated to accent the details for the perfect amount of exquisite detail and lightweight fun.
These concave post earrings measure 3/4 inch in diameter. These are completely hand fabricated from sterling silver (recycled) and fine silver and they have been made in my one person shop in Atlanta GA USA.
Note from the Artist
I made these pressed flower 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 Pressed Flowers I am inspired by the circular nature of experience that give us continuity in our daily lives.
Every experience we have shapes our nature, giving us the strength to achieve our wildest dreams, to overcome unexpected setbacks, and to endure life’s toughest conflicts. Overcoming obstacles and achieving long held dreams, our life is a montage of defining moments conquered and memories claimed. Yet each revolution of the earth brings a recurrence of event, of time, of season, connecting us to all the generations that have come before.
Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the texture in Pressed Flowers 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 Pressed Flowers.
