"Connecting to the wildness of nature has the ability to uplift, heal and sustain life."
The Redwoods found along the Avenue of the Giants are Coast Redwoods, also called California Redwoods. The trees grow in a narrow grove near the coast of Northern California and Southern Oregon. Coast Redwoods are the tallest trees in the world!
Although not quite as tall as the Coast Redwoods, Giant Redwoods grow wider and more massive. In fact, they are the most massive things living on Earth! Giant Redwood also live a little longer than Coast Redwoods, living for more than 3,000 years. I count myself fortunate to live among them.
SIZE AND DETAIL:
Earrings are about 1" long (not including the ear wire). Each pair contains approximately 4.0 grams of fine silver. I handcraft each piece so weight may vary slightly. All my materials are recycled and/or natural. The ear hooks are made of sterling silver and shaped so they hang nicely and won't fall out.
HOW IT"S MADE:
I made these fine silver earrings using Art Clay Silver (PMC). .999 After I shape the piece, I fire it in my jewelry kiln for 2 hours at 1650 degrees. I give it a bath in patina and polish it to a high shine. Most of my jewelry is made to order but I usually craft them within a month or so of sale.
It's so easy! Fine silver doesn't tarnish easily, in fact I have a couple of pieces I haven't polished in a year or so. Just get a silver polishing cloth, when you notice a little change in the silver brilliance, just rub it with the cloth a few times! It will not disappoint.
