From the Branch to the Ear

We have these lovely Orange Trumpet Creepers in our garden. They give shade to our car and color in our garden.

They also keep dropping these bells, which I just lately realized would look perfect as earrings.

I drilled the tops and put jewelry nails through them.

I varnished them several times and painted them with conductive paint. I shaped the wires in ear wires and the ends were filed for a soft smooth round tip.

They were then electroformed for a total of about 6 hours, first with copper and then silver (999).

I oxidized them and brushed them and the results are these beautiful, organically shaped earrings.

They are light, and each pair will have its natural differences.

They are available in the shop.
