I created these earrings for a holiday show last week. I wanted something that was a nod to the holidays but could be worn all winter. I looked to holly leaves for my inspiration.
These were cut from sheets of copper,shaped and textured and then given an antiqued patina.
This was my reference for my inspiration, a botanical painting from 1819.
I'm not quite ready for the holidays yet, give me a few more days and maybe a snowflake or two!
