Mussel Earrings in Sterling Silver
Another treasure I loved to collect along the shoreline as a girl, every mussel shell is unique, except for its mirror image. Its rough, lined texture is not just an intriguing surface, but a sign of its years, its journey.
These earrings were hand carved in wax, each line carefully cut and sculpted to replicate the mottled blue ribs found on the water’s edge. After being cast using the lost wax method, I clean up the imperfections and apply a stippled texture. Finally I put a black patina on and polish it back to highlight the texture to the fullest.
