Fused Foliage Earrings with Opals
Silver & Stone Earrings
Created by Jan Van Diver
Hand fabricated one of a kind earrings have foliage inspired fused textures that have been oxidized for contrast. The patterns are created using a torch and hand cut sterling silver shapes, fusing, then further working the pattern. Once this is done, the pattern sheet is formed and framed like "gems". These large earrings are bold yet light enough to be comfortable. Free form bezel set opals complete the look. Hand burnishing to a high shine highlights the texture. Height measurement includes the sterling silver ear wires.
