Hanging In The Balance
Just like the vernal equinox, when winter blues begin to meld into spring greenery, this pair of turquoise earrings strikes a satisfying balance. Maker Emilie Shapiro uses the ancient lost wax technique to handcraft each one—she makes a model using carving wax, forms a plaster mold around the model, then fires it in a kiln to leave negative space behind. Next, she pours molten recycled brass inside, lets it solidify, then finishes it off with raw turquoise. The result? An organic feeling pair that symbolizes new beginnings and refreshed energy. Handmade in New York City.
Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
