The earrings I have created are more like beautiful artistic expressions that frame your face. Each design I have perfected on paper, then carved from a piece of wax…usually from a vision, floral inspiration, or architectural inspiration. In the case of Sherah, Goddess of the Sea, the inspiration came from a photo of an ornate Parisian awning. This design was particularly challenging to carve because of the cut outs…I had to be VERY careful not to crack my wax as I was carving so thin!
The carving of my originals can take anywhere from 10-20 hours depending on the complexity of the design. From the initial sketch to having a pair available up on my site could take 3 months! I always share that the jewellery I create is my true labour of love!
Once my original wax carving is cast, moulded, then re-cast in multiples, I dive into sanding and finishing work. Once the piece is sanded to my satisfaction, I grind and perfect all the lines with diamond burrs. After this stage I proceed to dropping the silver design into a liver of sulphur bath to turn the whole design black, then hand polish away all the areas I can reach with my cotton buffing wheels. This is what lends to the Medieval and Gothic feeling of my sterling silver earrings and pendants.
Once hand polished I choose my hand selected briolette cut gemstone drops for the final icing on the cake! Please take note that the gemstones for each earring style may be customized to your colour desire!
I also create white, yellow and rose gold earrings that can be found here. These earrings are carved lighter because gold is a heavier metal than sterling silver, and I am always taking great care to make sure the earrings are lightweight on the ears.
