It's all about brains over bling with these beautifully simple drop earrings. An embodiment of calm and balance, they express an unfussy but artful style. Delightfully lightweight with a touch of movement, these geometric drops are long, lean and everyday-elegant.

The design is inspired by cotter-pins and mechanical fasteners in my grandpa's workshop when I was a child – I've elevated the design into a piece of art, and brushed them to a luminous glow in solid sterling silver. My Grace earrings are beautifully minimal and all handmade. The satin finish and hammered, handmade quality add a warm and casual tone that will make them a daily go-to.

There is nothing average about the quality of these earrings. I fabricate them entirely by hand using traditional silversmithing techniques of sawing, filing, hammering, bending, soldering and sanding each pair, one at a time. They are created from scratch, beginning with silver sheet and wire – even the ear wires are handmade.

The ear wires are made of .999 solid fine silver, and the body of the earrings is made of .925 solid sterling silver. The length of the drop is about 3".

I have a small collection...

I have a small collection of antique poetry books from the late 1800s that I inherited from my great grandfather. Even before I could read, the engraved illustrations of gossamer angels and tempest tossed boats drew me into a grownup world of mortality and miracles. Those images inspired this miniature scene of a tiny shipwreck about to fall upon the cliffs of an unknown land. I set the enamel into a chunky pendant and etched the bezel with the Fisherman’s Prayer: “O God, thy sea is so great and my boat is so small.” . . . “Lost at Sea”, pendant necklace. Enamel, sterling silver. Hand painted, torch fired, hand fabricated. This piece will be available in a shop update soon. Stay tuned for exact date and time. 🖤 . . Look back in my feed to see how I paint my enameled scenes using finely ground glass and water, then heat them with a torch to permanently fuse the glass to metal. . . #instajewelry #instasmithy #instasmith #silversmith #Metalsmith #goldsmith #ladysmith #RioJeweler #SNAGmember #TESmember #metalsmithing #handmadejewelry #handmade #handcraftedjewelry #contemporaryenamel #enamel #enameled #miniatures #enameljewelry #jewelryaddict #jewelrycollector #jewelryoftheday #miniature #oneofakindjewelry #contemporarycraft #artjewelry #mementomori #artisanjewelry #showmeyourjewelry
