item of the week

this week's item of the week is not one but two earring styles - small and large aligned post earrings. when i was deciding on this week's item i thought, "what shape do i absolutely love?" i had a quick and easy answer - aligned - which i think you can see best in these two pairs of earrings. i create this shape using a "finger shaped mandrel" intended to make ring bands with the comfortable, more natural shape of a rounded square. i bought this mandrel a few years ago as a treat. later, when i was developing my preface collection, i didn't want to limited myself to working with just the preface shape so i turned to that mandrel. i felt its design was complimentary to the unconventional geometry of preface. for my aligned shape, i hammer the outside of the piece and flatten the top and bottom ever so slightly in the rolling mill. the result is a simple, mildly unexpected form.
