Handmade Eggshell Drop Earrings in Oxidized Silver
Rivaling the enchantingly delicate nature of genuine eggshell, this pair of subtly shimmering drop earrings is the perfect addition to polish of your nature-inspired style. Crafted in the USA, the artisan, Elaine B., who creates this collection uses cast, recycled, and oxidized sterling silver. The "broken" edges feel organic, and in combination with the matted oxidized finish they give the shapes a very authentic eggshell feel. The slightly unfinished, edgy style meets the sophisticated shimmer of the sky blue topaz stone that is cradled in the middle of each half shell, giving the earrings the advantage of everyday wearability and also enough elegance for special occasions.
Elaine is a jewelry artisan based in charming downtown Charlottesville, Virginia. She began her journey into jewelry making as a young woman who asked herself the question, "how do I want to spend my days?" Her theory was that everything is a job. For every product that's made and service that's provided, someone is doing that as his or her career. So she decided that what she wanted to do was create. Through her time in college attending courses in the Craft and Material Studies major, it became clear to Elaine that she wanted to create jewelry. She is now the owner and creator of Elaine B Jewelry, a line dedicated to providing beautiful wearable pieces with a genuine story and thoughtful design.
