Silver and Turquoise Shadowbox Earrings
This design is based off of my Shadowbox Pendants.
A friend of mine really wanted the pendant style as earrings, so here they are.
Like the pendants, the earrings are hollow forms and hand-hammered. They have some leeway to swing and dangle from the earring hooks.
The earrings measure 1 and 3/4 inches long and 1/4 inch deep.
This piece is hand-carved and a hollow form. A very dramatic and modern piece, yet may be worn with just about anything – from a t-shirt, to cashmere, to silk. The carvings catch the light for some sparkle, and the concave shape in the middle of the pendant is very reflective.
The shield is approximately 3 inches long, half an inch wide, and about a half inch deep.
I’ve been experimenting with the anticlastic technique and have moved on to trying it out on earrings. These earrings are hand-hammered and shaped into a ram’s horn spiral.
Very modern and very dramatic!
