Laurel Earrings, Large
Hand-hammered brass hoop, wrapped with brass and handmade paper petals, sealed with resin, with sterling silver earwires. About 4 inches long.
Dyed with an ombre effect (except for ivory).
VERSO jewelry is made from wire forms dipped into plant fibers suspended in water. The fibers cling to the wire and shrink as they dry. A translucent paper skin is built up on the form over successive dips.
The paper-skinned forms are then sealed with resin to make them waterproof and durable.
Each piece of paper jewelry is handmade and therefore unique. Variations will occur from piece to piece.
