Lace Leaf and Hessonite Garnet Earrings, Sterling Silver
Beautiful lace leaf shapes are hand-cast from actual vintage lace using lost-wax casting, with a deep red hessonite garnet bead accent. I've added handmade sterling silver ear wires. Delicate and airy, but with the strength of metal, these earrings make an effortless statement and go with anything.
I start with a wax model, and then a plaster mold is made from the wax. Liquid metal is poured into the mold and heated in a kiln to create the final product, which is then tumbled, tumbled, and tumbled again until shiny.
Earrings measure 1 7/8" long, and about 1 1/4" wide.
These earrings would pair well with the Little Lace Pendant: https://www.etsy.com/listing/733671957/little-lace-pendant-sterling-silver-or?ref=shop_home_active_11&frs=1
