One of a kind interpretations of the classic hoop, dangle, and stud earring.
3.8" x 1.2"

Hand fabricated from sterling silver wire, the pieces in my Fractured series are inspired by fractures in crystals as well as the segmentation of butterfly and dragonfly wings. Striking asymmetric geometric shapes are divided by overlapping and intersecting lines. The rich black patina has been brushed away from the raised areas on both the front and the back of the pieces creating a greater sense of three dimensionality.
