Organic Flowers Earrings with Imperial Jasper and Sterling Silver
The beautifully matched pair of Imperial Jasper stones resembled leaves to me. I set the stone dangles in a hand fabricated fine and sterling silver setting and I roller-printed a leaf onto the reverse of each. The sterling silver flower posts are organically shaped and, like flowers in nature, not exactly the same. I first hand drew flower shapes on sheet silver and then hand saw cut the shapes. I gently shaped the flower petals into curves and soldered three tiny sterling silver balls to the center.
The flower post s measure approximately 1/2" wide.
The earrings measure 1 9/16" from the top of the flower post to the bottom of the dangle.
