Indigo Gate EarringsVerso
Handmade paper and sterling silver dewdrops, on a silver chain with clusters of silver drops inspired by the curled fronds on maidenhair ferns. Sterling silver earwire, about 3" long, light as air.
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 to make them water resistant and durable.
