Found this new artist at a N.C. artisan festival. I was first drawn to her unusual designs and then I found out she uses sterling silver, natural semi precious stones, AND pottery clay (that looks like stones)!
What a pretty sterling silver dangle earring shaped like a leaf.
The leaf surface is etched to show texture and has an nice swirl for the vein. Sitting aside is a rich deep red Garnet stone set in the bezel.
This earring hangs 2" from the sterling lever backing.
The detail work of her fine craftsmanship is beautiful.
