- the story
It Might As Well Be Spring
The arrival of spring is marked with budding leaves, new life, and a renewed sense of optimism. Inspired by this freeing sense, artist Eileen Baumeister McIntyre created these leaf-like Silver Lining pendant earrings. Lined with a sterling silver "halo", each richly textured leaf is handcrafted of shibuichi, a patinated Japanese silver and copper alloy that was once used to decorate Samurai swords.
Eileen has studied both botanical illustration and metalworking, and she draws upon the traditions of both to create her stunning jewelry. She draws her inspiration from her own garden, often beginning with drawings or watercolors of the leaves, seeds and petals she loves. She then uses precious metals to transform those impressions into wearable works of art. Handmade in Long Island, New York.

- the maker
Eileen Baumeister McIntyre
I have an extensive organic garden that is both serene and stimulating. I find it peaceful to work in the garden and can be found outside among the flowers, vegetables, herbs and weeds with my sketchbook throughout the growing season. My drawings and paintings have always had a botanical theme which has 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. I also etch and emboss the metals to create texture and relief and utilize traditional metalworking techniques as well. collection
