Fabricated from sterling silver sheet and wire, these earrings are meticulously crafted by jewelry artist Ashley Gilreath. Each element is individually hand cut and textured from sheet metal, and no two pair are ever identical, with every pair having a perfectly balanced asymmetrical arrangement of decorative parts.
These earrings are part of the artist's 'Textures of Memory' series, embodying references to the artists' own past -- particularly architectural and botanical elements -- re-interpreted to resemble something 'new yet familiar'. The artist aims to create beautiful, wearable pieces that convey soft tension -- much like that of a memory just out of reach.
Oxidized and textured Sterling Silver. Approximately .75" square.
