fresh water seed pearls, 10k, 14k earring findings
21 x 6.5 x 10mm
I’m fascinated by the parameters of studs and ways to explore such a small jewelry format. These pieces use seed pearls that are intricately woven along the edges and surfaces to explore line, form, and pattern. I employ casting, threading, and pinning to play with ways of accentuating these studs into mini compositions.
