These earrings are enameled in a ice blue, oil grey, or prussian blue. These are cast from a wax mold of a granulated fern circle made using the ancient technique of precision fusing called granulation. Each piece is cast in sterling silver and then carefully polished, cleaned and packed with wet powdered glass which is then fused in a kiln. The earrings are then sanded and heated in the kiln again and then a final polish and cleaning after attaching a sterling silver forged French hook clasp. These are lightweight with great dangle movement.
