august jewelry of the month

the second installment in my jewelry of the month collection are pearl + paper earrings. they are constructed of die-cut matte board and pearls. i found the paper cutouts at an art supply store in vancouver that specializes in recycled supplies. as i rummaged through a bin of assorted paper shapes, i found these scalloped ovals and i dug until i found matching ones. for these earrings, i sewed pearls in between the scallops and made only three pairs.

they are approximately 1.5" x .5" with sterling silver earwires.

each pair is $82 and comes with a numbered and signed card.

these earrings will remain available until sold or august 31, whichever is first. you can purchase them here.

jewelry of the month is a way for me to realize designs that don’t fit into my regular collections or studio jewelry. these pieces are an opportunity to take ideas from sketchbook to workbench and share them with you. each edition will be limited to less than 10 and will come with a numbered and signed card. each item will sell for under $120. i plan to use unusual materials like vintage wallpaper, new techniques like sewing, and i will collaborate with friends who work in other media like glass and clay.

if you would like advance notice, please send me an email to sign up for my jewelry of the month mailing list.

thanks for reading.
