I love the Spring Flower earrings, it is such a colorful and beautiful design! It comes in various color variations, but the carnelian and ruby combo is one of the most dynamic and vibrant color combos. Every one of these pieces has multiple layers of enamels in just the right order to make the flower and leaves look as beautiful as they do, it is a beautiful effect, but it takes a lot of patience and precision. I can only enamel for 5 consecutive hours because of the incredibly tedious and detail oriented nature of the work, and I can't enamel for more than 3 consecutive days.
Hi, I am a jeweler/enamelist based out of Oakland, CA. My early years were spent in South America, mostly in Peru, I then moved to California as a teen and have been here since. I love making things from an early age, and tried many mediums before focusing my talent on jewelry when I was 18. I am inspired by nature, ancient and antique jewelry, and the luminosity of gems. I am also passionate about color, which comes through in my work, playing with color is my favorite part of the process.
