Ancient Basket Earrings
Vessels inspired by ancient baskets are woven from sheets of my own handmade paper, coiled and stitched with brass, then coated in resin to waterproof and harden them.
Gold filled sticks, pendulums, and earwires. Surprisingly lightweight, with beautiful movement. One-of-a-kind.

- Adjustable size 6 to 8.
- Adjustable size 9 to 11.
