Serein, the French word for a fine rain falling from a clear sky after sunset, washing away the troubles of the day, and leaving contentment in it’s wake. Okay that last bit about contentment is my inspiration. But the idea is just breathtaking… Trust the French to come up with such a lovely word for water!!

Hand forged in Argentium Silver, these forged silver earrings measure approximately 2 inches in length, and swing delightfully on anti-tarnish Argentium Silver earwires.

The tidal forces of the ocean- the currents that shape and guide the waves- are often only the smallest ripple on the surface. They may show as a delicate eddy, or the merest undulation of sea, more felt than seen. Open Waters is inspired by the hidden depths and forces beneath the open sea.

These hand forged ocean-inspired Art Earrings measure approximately 1.375 inches from the top of the earwire, and are created in anti-tarnish Argentium Silver.  Hand forged entirely by hand in my Arkansas studio.

What is Argentium Sterling Silver? Argentium silver is a newer alloy and instead of mixing the fine silver with copper like in traditional Sterling Silver, Argentium is 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 Open Waters.
