Truth be told we live in a throw away society and our life sustaining environment is deteriorating as a result. These earrings are the realization of a long held artistic vision of creating thought provoking, but wearable pieces of jewelry fabricated from discarded items. While not obvious, the perfectly imperfect leaf castings were once plastic leaves gathered from a found artificial plant. Used in a similar manner as wax during the casting process, the leaves burned away in my kiln and were replaced with reclaimed silver. The incomplete formation of the oxidized leaves reminds us that our environment, with all its awe inspiring beauty, may soon wither and die because of our carelessness. The gemstones birthed from the womb of mother earth are treasures from both land and sea.
