Silk Worm Cocoon Earrings - Hand Cast & Forged from Nature
*PRODUCT & PROCESS*
Enchanted by the rough yet smooth texture of a raw silk worm cocoon - I experimented with casting portions of cocoons in metal. Capturing the unique surfaces and shape pieces to showcase the fascinating organic texture.
The earrings are are two sides of a quarter of a cocoon shell forged by hand into the curvaceous triangular ear cuffs. They are petite and smoothly curve under the ear as an elegant accent for more formal occasions or a strong yet understated pair that can be worn every day. Lovely to look at and incredibly satisfying for fidgety hands to touch.
*MEASUREMENTS & MATERIAL*
The earrings are 5/8 x 1/2 x 1/4" (16 x 13 x 6mm). Please see the pictures for details size and curved fit to the earlobe. Earrings are available in solid sterling silver or gold fill (x3-4 the thickness of gold plate).
Silver and gold pieces can be maintained with a polishing cloth. Ammonia will deteriorate gold layers, for this reason avoid commercial polishing products and chlorinated pools.
