These earrings were hand carved and cast in 18k gold using the lost wax process. They were originally inspired by the ruffled edges of coral. After the first clusters were cast, the spheres were added to the centers and so they became flowers, or as I like to think of them, ‘flowers of the sea’. They are accented with custom rose cut teal tourmalines, mined from Mount Mica, Maine, and hand cut in South Portland, weighing in at 1.5 carats each.

About the artist

Natalie is based in Minot, Maine where she has her home studio and lives with her two cats. As a child, she spent many afternoons beachcombing and adventuring on Vinalhaven’s rocky coast, and began collecting sea glass, unusual rocks, urchins, and shells. She has always had a deep love for the ocean, with its power and mystery always drawing her back. In 2009 Natalie began her degree at Maine College of Art in Portland where she quickly discovered she could combine her two passions: jewelry and the ocean. Working her way through college doing construction and lobstering, she majored in metalsmithing and jewelry and graduated in 2013. She visits the beach and her home island as much as possible which always inspires ideas for new designs, pushing her in new directions. In her spare time Natalie enjoys snowboarding, gardening and of course visiting the ocean whenever possible. ...Read MoreRead Less
