Golden Blossoms

These brilliant earrings won't just catch the light--they'll have you carrying some of your own sunshine with you wherever you go. Inspired by the flowers sprouting up in her own garden, artist Eileen Baumeister McIntyre captures the flowing form of these head-turning sunflowers by hand-carving a wax mold, which she uses to cast the dangling pendants from solid sterling silver. She then gives them each a burst of brilliant sunshine by gold plating the petals. The earrings are mounted on sterling silver hardware. Like a Van Gogh painting that blossomed into three-dimensional life, these earrings are a precious, wearable work of art that will light up your favorite look. Handmade in Long Island, New York.

“The shapes and textures of flowers, petals, seeds, vines, and leaves” are what stimulate Eileen Baumeister McIntyre’s creativity. Fortunately, she is able to find natural inspiration aplenty in the extensive organic garden that surrounds her Long Island studio.

Eileen, whose rich art training includes botanical illustration, often begins the creative process by opening up her sketchbook. “The simple act of slowly getting into the ‘zone’ usually sparks some kind of creative excitement for me,” she says. Expressing herself through precious metals in a process that involves hand-carving her jewelry and then casting it into sterling silver, Eileen says her designs are a “celebration of the enduring beauty of nature.”
