Sterling Silver Layered Leatherwood Flower Earrings
These hand fabricated earrings feature lovely stylized leatherwood flowers hand cut from a Tasmanian leatherwood honey tin and layered over sterling silver rectangles. Both the honey tin cut out and the sterling silver rectangles have been given a curved form. The silver has been given an oxidized, brushed finish. The earrings measure approximately 7/16" across and hang from sterling silver earwires. The total earring length is approximately 1-1/2”.
The honey tin series is part of my work for the Deja Vu Art and Fine Craft Show in celebration of America Recycles Day, featuring professional artists creating work made from recycled or repurposed materials. My work won Best of Show at this event in 2018. The 2019 event will be held in November in Columbus, Indiana.
