Nebula Purple Gem Earrings

By Jenne Rayburn



1 in stock

Created with hand drawn designs and multilayered finishes using the centuries old technique of enameling on metal, these enamel earrings are coated with many thin layers of glass, pigment and gold and use the technique of sgraffito whereby a preliminary surface color is covered with another colored layer that is scratched in such a way that in the lower color a pattern emerges. The design is then fused in a kiln at 1500 degrees. Finished with riveted faceted gemstones that sparkle like the stars. The resulting earrings “go together” but are not mirror images. Every pair is unique and one of a kind.
