Sterling Silver Mixed Metal Flower Garden Earrings
These mixed metal earrings feature lovely colorful flowers floral diamond shapes cut from a honey tin and layered over larger sterling silver diamond shapes that are etched with my original moroccan tile pattern. 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 1-1/4”.
Minor imperfections on the smaller diamond shapes are due to the condition of the salvaged honey tin.
The honey tin series is part of my work created for the 2019 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.
