Jan’s earrings

Birds in a Tree

I made these earrings for my friend Jan in memory of the many happy hours we’ve spent together watching the birds in our shared garden. She helps me to identify the different birds that come and go here.

I photo etched a brass texture plate and used it to roll print the design onto a silver. I then selected and cut the discs to feature two facing birds. The lapis beads were chosen to match a necklace Jan wears.

    Heartfelt and beautiful with all the elegance of a natural garden.

    Thanks Jane. Jan thinks these have a Byzantine look. Very fitting as she lives most of the year in Greece.
