:: Narrowleaf Pods ::

Sometimes the perfect elements lie right outside the door.  An exquisite cluster of yucca pods on a pale dried stalk, gathered from my yard, provided the material for these earrings.  The pendants are made of fine silver PMC which was pressed into the pods for a perfect textural impression .  I love the metal clays for their plasticity and the way that they handle and appear exactly as ceramic clay, only they fire to pure metal.  It's ironic that a high tech wonder can produce such elemental, natural results.  

These are fingerprints of the landscape surrounding my home in the high desert of north central New Mexico, a place populated by juniper, cholla and prickly pear cactus, chamisa, yucca, and most recently, a fair number of bobcats.  A light, warm patina was applied and sealed against darkening with Renaissance Wax.  Hand finished to a matte surface.

The earwires were hammered on a piece of old mine railroad track found a few miles from here.  They have a very deep patina.

Organic, wild, yet feminine.  For the lover of the desert wild.

SIZE:  Just over 2 7/8" long by 1/2" wide.

CARE:   To protect the patina, rinse only in cool water to clean.  Avoid any type of abrasive with the silver.

PRESENTATION:  These earrings will come to you giftwrapped in recycled and earth-friendly materials.  See my shop policies below for details.
