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 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.”
