Silver Ruffle Reef Earrings
The inspiration for my Reef Series originated from my many scuba diving adventures over the years. The beauty of marine life has always drawn me to explore it closer and in doing so I was moved to develop a series of silver earrings based on the gorgeous, natural textures of the reef. These silver Ruffle Reef Earrings are very versatile with many looks and the large hoop earrings are very popular!
I utilized the traditional silversmithing technique of fold forming to create the stunning variety of textures within the silver. Each component was folded over with a mallet and then hammered either on the edge or the spine with a metal hammer to mimic the textures found in the reef. The shiny, polished exterior and matte interior create contrast that highlights the form beautifully!
