Here are my Essence Earrings.
I designed these earrings when a friend was opening a winery and asked me to make something special to sell for the grand opening.I was reluctant at first imagining purple grapes hanging from people ears! Then when sitting on our deck I looked to our grape vines and was inspired to try to get just the Finger print or essence of the leaf pattern, and when you think about it, why is that the grapes get all the glory! Anyways, my friend has long ago sold his winery but these earrings live on.
The toggle is cast in fine silver to get the tiny details and to best feature the whiteness of silver. The clip hoops sterling silver and are super easy to put on and wear.
"the Essence earrings are so unusual! I prefer lever backs to all others generally, and the little oval hoops are actually more like a lever back hinge - never seem anything quite like them. Plus of course, they're very light and easy to wear, and a perfect scale for me (I'm a very small human.)" Karel, York, Ontario
