In the 1920’s the introduction of clip on earring caused a decline in the popularity of ear piercing in the United State and the United Kingdom. However the reemergence of ear piercing in the 1970’s, along with promotions arranged by earring manufactures at department stores brought the popularity of ear piercing back into the main stream and has lead to today’s popularity of multiple piercing in the ears and other parts of the body.
White Topaz and hand hammered 14k gold filled wire
When I sat down in my studio to make this series of earrings I was wanting to make simple and elegant earrings with fine gemstones. I planned the design to retain the utmost respect for the individual beauty of each stone used. Graceful curves of the metal mimic the shape of the stones. Weather using a single stone or multiple stones close attention is paid to the selection of each element used. The results are individually unique and coherent piece.
These earrings are not necessarily showy, but they will be noticed for their sparkle and simple elegance.
