As I looked out over our latest blanket of snow, my thoughts were on the approaching spring. These beautiful violets make me think of green grass and warm days!
These earrings were lovingly created entirely by hand, using an ancient technique called chasing and repousse. This 5000 year old technique uses small, specialized tools and a hammer to push and form the metal, either from the front of the piece or from behind. This is a time-intensive, meditative technique, which produces a unique result.
The earrings are 1-1/2 inches long and hang from handmade sterling silver earwires.
