Earrings Old and New

Finally today I was able to finish up some earrings hanging out on my work table. First up is a new design, with a domed oval set into a flat frame. Called Nesting, these earrings depict a parent bird and a hungry nestling in the treetops.

This design is an extension of my favorite Meadowlark earrings, which incorporate that flat window frame with sculptural branches and birds. I've sold several pair of the Meadowlarks, each set one-of-a-kind with different birds and branch configurations. This is the design I choose to wear myself, day in and day out as I think it represents my personal imagery at its very best.

I'm trying to extend the concepts that I like the most about the Meadowlarks to make a larger collection of earrings, since I want to try approaching galleries about carrying my work. Meanwhile, both sets of earrings will be available in my Etsy shop, in case you're looking for a special gift for someone on your list (or yourself!).
