Argentii one-of-a-kind earrings with sterling silver, 14k rose gold, 14k yellow gold, and dyed resin.
Anticlastically formed, fabricated, cast, dyed, cold enamelled plique-à-jour.
These earrings build on what I’ve learned from making many anticlastically formed pieces over the first decade of my career. Countless paper mock-ups and a collection of copper prototypes directed the pattern cut from a flat piece of silver. Applying thousands of hammer strokes, I balanced the metal’s malleability and tensility to slowly hollow-form the silver sheet into elegant botanical forms. Gold and resin accents add vibrancy and colour to these graceful, light-weight earrings.
