Like A Cool Breeze

Inspired by a breezy spring day, this lustrous set of earrings celebrates nature's enduring beauty and fluid elements. Designer Eileen Baumeister McIntyre highlights a gold-filled blade of "grass" with swirls of silver "wind" to evoke a natural sense of calm.
McIntyre 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.

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre finds her inspiration from her extensive organic garden. Working in the garden among the flowers, vegetables, herbs and weeds, she takes time to fill her sketchbook throughout the growing season. Her drawings and paintings have always had a botanical theme, which eventually 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. Eileen also etches and embosses the metals to create texture and relief and utilize traditional metalworking techniques. collection
