A pair of earrings made to perfectly frame your face, these Woven Depths Fireworks designs are a fantastic pick-me-up for whenever you are feeling down. With a sparkle that highlights your features and a shine that will boost your senses, these gently curved earrings are a must-have purchase.
At the end of each of the three sterling silver drops is a small unique charm. Each one is made from hand woven 14K yellow and rose gold wire embedded behind glass, creating a glittery, shiny finish. As the light hits the angles of the glass, it creates a gold shimmer that is just incredible. The entire design is lightweight, nickel-free and very comfortable for all day wear.
• Size: Each earring is 3 1/8 inches long, each gold accent rectangle is 1/2 an inch tall and 3/8 of an inch across.
• Weight: These earrings are also lightweight and comfortable, weighing in at .18 ounces - exactly the weight of a nickel (.18 ounces).
• Gold: I'm using both yellow and rose 14K gold fill in this design. If you melt it down, gold fill is 1/20th gold by weight. It wears and cares just like solid 14K, so it's a good compromise in quality and price between solid 14K gold and 14K gold plate. All my materials are nickel free so you can wear them with confidence!
• Glass:Pieces of clear glass are embedded on top of the woven metal.
• Packaging: Items are packaged with an anti-tarnish tab in a recycled paper gift box with anti-tarnish filler, which makes for easy gifting and storage.
• Ear Guards: If you ordered french hook earwires, they are sent with complementary soft plastic ear guards to provide extra assurance that your earrings will stay on.
I have pioneered a new technique which creates the woven metal under glass effect. Using a medieval finger weaving technique, I weave strips from thin metal wire. I then take that woven metal fabric and embed it behind glass. The different shapes of glass either magnify or distort the underlying weave creating many interesting visual effects. In order to take these visual effects even further, I then fuse layers of glass in my kiln and put the woven metal fabric behind that.
But my favorite part is how the bends and the twists of the woven metal fabric interact with the light that is focused by the glass. The intense sparkly nature of these pieces rivals the sparkle in a well cut diamond!
Here is a brief video of me weaving the woven metal fabric:
