Clear pockets of air surrounded by water gleam iridescent and proud. Collecting as waves crash upon one another, dispersing on the tides. Glimpses of ephemeral froth, shining silver in the sunlight, flicker and disappear, tumbled in the playful waves.
Inspired by the ebb and flow of ocean currents, Bubbles is hand forged in anti tarnish Argentium Sterling Silver. Each earring features a delicate swirl of silver mimicking the current, and is accented with shimmering froth and silver bubbles tossed in the surf. Earring measures approximately 1.25 inches from top of ear wire.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the ocean is how infinitely changeable and ephemeral the beauty of each wave is that crashes on the shore. No matter how long you gaze at the sea, each wave flows over the next- brilliantly as beautiful as ever. Gaze in wonder, where has that wave been? What shores has it ebbed against, what adventures has it seen…
What is Argentium Sterling Silver? Argentium silver is a newer alloy and instead of mixing the fine silver with copper, it’s mixed as 93.5% silver with 6.5% Germanium. This allows the Argentium to be just as strong as traditional sterling silver, but Germanium actually allows the Argentium to create a clear oxide when exposed to air, insulating the silver and allowing the Argentium to resist tarnish.
A Note from the Artist
I am deeply inspired by the forces of water in all it’s forms. From the greatest tsunami to the tiniest tear drop, I think the ebb and flow of water reflects fascinating commentary on our lives ashore. For every ripple, there’s a measure of excitement tinged with uncertainty. For every serene wash of bubbling seafoam upon the shore, a fascinating conversation of ephemeral beauty and microscopic details can be had.
As humans we are so hurried and urgent, yet the tides continue their unceasing paths, swept by the currents, encouraged by the moon. The waves beckon the imagination of sentimental souls, rushing against the shores, forever changing the lands we walk.
I forge these artworks to uplift and inspire. It is my humble intention to enrich the world with uniquely elegant wearable art. With every piece I create, I hope to make someone stop and say, that’s beautiful.
I hope you enjoy Bubbles.
