Hand-hammered earrings are formed and manipulated from sterling silver wire. The enamel dangle pieces are also hand formed and torch-fired at more than 1500 degrees. They’ve been added to give just a hint of color.

The inspiration for these lovelies is the photo below. Well worn, light weight and comfortable will come to mind as these earrings grace your ears. Dress up with your favorite long skirt and boots or down – with your favorite t-shirt and jeans.14532206698_efff3d9a40_m

I think that fall produces some of the most beautiful subtle colors. Hand-formed metal bases are coated with muted enamel colors. These are torch-fired at 1500 degrees to produce a long wearing finish.

As you can see by this inspirational photo – there are fall hues that are high contrast, but light in color. Lovely enough to wear anytime, these earrings are sure to become a favorite of yours.c4d50c0ad24f5808840f2da4a4a2aec7

Inspiration for color may come from nature. But, in this case it not only inspired the colors of fire red and bitter green enamel, but the shape as well. The perfection of the Calla Lily shown here was what inspired these light weight earrings. a2dd496208c9488b2380cdadefcb1e5c
