During ancient times Europeans wore metal neckpieces and bracelets that were twisted into a rigid ring called a Torc. The word torc means to twist, so Kaminer took inspiration both from the ancient forms and the meaning of the word to design her Torc Jewelry Series.
These earrings began as silver wire that was forged on two sides to create the twisted shape. They were formed by hammering multiple times to create the final asymmetrical unit. These hammered earrings are the same size as the links on the Torc Link Necklace III and pendant on the Torc Pendant III.
