Hand forged sterling Silver Teal Kyanite earrings inspired by the flowing currents of the deepest ocean. Cool waters rush in an endless flow, gliding, diving, deep within the depths below. Currents in shadow, safe from the light, marvelous wonders hidden in caverns of night.
The darkest depths of the oceans are still an unexplored wonder. Our cultural imagination marvels at the potential hidden just out of sight. Centuries of poets, writers, and passers by have stared out at the surface of the ocean and dreamed of all the possibilities.
These earrings are inspired by those possibilities. Generous Rose cut Cabochons of Teal Blue Kyanite are framed in darkened sterling silver in these unique art jewelry earrings. The perfect mysterious accent, Shadowed Seas measure approximately 1.25 inches in over all length.
These earrings are hand forged from Sterling Silver with Argentium Sterling Silver ear wires. 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 Shadowed Seas.
