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.
