Liquid enamel has been sketched onto stainless steel and is paired with sterling silver earring posts. Each one of a kind design is hand drawn through a scratch away technique on the enamel called sgraffito.
Approximately 1 3/8" in length and 7/8" in width.
These earrings are on view as a part of "Timeless Cure", an exhibition featuring artists that are using a timeless craft to create contemporary pieces that connect materials through centuries. Enamel is a technique dating back to the 18th century. It is powdered or liquid glass that is fired on sterling silver, steel or copper in a kiln that cures to a solid glossy or matte finish on the surface of the metal.
