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.
I am exhibiting the two pieces shown in photos below as part of the Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild “Made with Love” jewelry exhibit and sale at Many Hands Gallery. The work of over 30 Guild members will be featured for this special event timed for Valentine Day shopping. Details for time and place are on the postcard back (below).
