A mixed bag of inspiration here: garden gate, unkempt vines, baroque embellishment. Each enthusiastic flourish is hand fabricated of sterling silver, both the scrolling design and the elongated ear wire in the back. It starts with a couple of gauges of silver wire, the ends melted and curled, then carefully nested together just right to become a tumbling viney wave. Imperfect but lively, they also slightly suggest the wings of an old world angel.
From top to bottom, these are about 1 1/2″ in length. The curve of the flourish extends from the ear lobe about 1/2″. The last photo of the earrings being worn shows my working sample pair, the listed pair for sale are new and unworn, limited edition.
