Tapestry Square Earrings with Blue Fluorite
These earrings are from my Tapestry series wrought in recycled fine silver, titanium coated blue fluorite and sterling silver. Inspired by the beautiful Japanese textiles that I saw everyday when working fora store that imported vintage Japanese kimono and other textiles. I particularly loved the rustic quilts made by the people in the rural countryside of Japan and these earrings remind me of the delicate embroidery from these quilts. The symmetry of the pattern has a kind of geometric mandala type feeling to me - very zen. I love the tactile feel of the pattern under my fingers.
