“Eye of the Storm” Earrings. $625. SOLD.

Moments of illumination are found in the eye of the storm. Wings summons the shades and shapes of the storm-webbed sky with these bold and brilliantly dangling earrings featuring multiple silversmithing techniques. The focal of each drop is a large square cabochon of finely-webbed turquoise, like the high desert skies beneath a gathering winter storm: the stone a rich teal blue, the webbing inky black lit here and there with an icy shimmer, beveled and the corners and domed across the surface, the bezels edged in twisted silver. Above the four corners of the sky, round cabochons of deep violet amethyst, highly domed and set into saw-toothed bezels, then linked to the larger cabochons below by way of paired hand-made sterling silver ingot beads, their surfaces exploding in hand-stamped sunburst patterns. Stones and beads all rest in a single bezel backing, all of a piece and with organic tabs extending at top and bottom to hold sterling silver earring wires and pendants. The pendants, bold diamond-shaped Eyes of Spirit that symbolize illumination and enlightenment, protection and guidance, are also wrought freehand, repoussé fashion, and dance beneath the stones via sterling silver jump rings. Earring length is 2.25″ long, excluding wires; compound bezels are 1.25″ long in total by 5/8″ across at the widest point; turquoise cabochons are 1/4″ across; amethyst cabochons are 5/16″ across; ingot beads are 1/4″ across; and pendants hang 1/4″ long by 1/4″ across at the widest point (all dimensions approximate).
