Inspired by the color of the sky just before dawn, Eileen Baumeister McIntyre created this glittering tribute to the prime hours of the day. She shapes slivers of sterling silver into delicate petals and adds an iridescent layer of glass enamel. The center of each pendant shines with a barely there pale blue hue and the edges gleam with soft gold. Swooping strands of gold cut like radiant sunbeams through the earring's centers. Handmade 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.”
