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.

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre finds her inspiration from her extensive organic garden. Working in the garden among the flowers, vegetables, herbs and weeds, she takes time to fill her sketchbook throughout the growing season. Her drawings and paintings have always had a botanical theme, which eventually evolved into the Garden of Silver jewelry line. Many of the jewelry pieces are created by hand carving into wax and then cast into sterling silver. Eileen also etches and embosses the metals to create texture and relief and utilize traditional metalworking techniques. collection
