Ear Art…

Aka earrings: sculptures you wear

Making my earrings is like making mini versions of my sculptural work. They bring me joy and I hope they do you too. If you like the color and whimsical style of my sculptures, then you will enjoy these too…a fun little sculpture you can own and wear everywhere you go! Add a bit of fun to your day and wardrobe.

I have had a super busy few weeks, all good but busy…teaching art camps, installation and opening of the exhibit at the Guild in Northfield and also creating 100 pairs of earrings for the MN State Fair FOCI gallery. I had so much fun playing with new color combinations for the beads I made. I hope you enjoy the new designs. If you see something you like and won’t be at the fair, send me a message and I can make you a pair and even mail them if you live far away.

I have a choice of backs, hypoallergenic Sterling silver or 14K gold over silver. These are some close ups:

I also had new cards printed for displays. Here are more designs:

These are another kind of wearable art… bottle opener necklaces. Imagine how fun it would be to wear one to a party, tailgate or barbeque and use it to open someone’s beer. It is a fantastic conversation starter!

At one point I got everyone to help assembly line style even. Sophie enjoyed it so much she wants me to teach her how to make beads

Making a pair on one mandrel makes it easier to keep the sizes the same and was to set up the patterns if you take it off as a set.
