Things that Remain - Hydrangea Earrings
There are pieces left behind when a life moves on. Tattered insect wings. An animal's bone, bleached white in the sun. Bare branches once the leaves have fallen. Flower petals, bits of shell. A broken heart.
These are the things that remain in memory and in loss.
Dried hydrangeas, left on the bush through winter, then cast in sterling silver.
Natural Carico Lake turquoise.
Vintage African trade beads.
Sterling silver earring wires.
Earrings measure 1" at their widest point and hang 2 1/2" from the ear.
Built by hand.
Made with love.
