Buttercup Fields Forever

Buttercups can be Glacial, Celery-leaved, and even fairytale-inspired (that would be Goldilocks). In fact, there are hundreds of varieties of this sweet little bloom. But the two we're enchanted by most hang from each earlobe: the delicately embossed sterling silver variety that enjoys being suspended inside gold-filled hoops. Handmade down to the French hooks by Eileen Baumeister McIntyre on Long Island, New York.

“The simple act of slowly getting into the 'zone' usually sparks some kind of creative excitement for me.”

“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.”
