Next Shop Restock:To be announced. I'm currently working on my next body of work.
Reversible Lone Pine Earrings, Sterling Silver + Turquoise
The Lone Pine Collection: Hand-built earrings of reclaimed sterling silver. I love all pieces that are built into this collection-- a Western Hemlock pine tree.
Featured stones: Vibrant blue turquoise.
Each piece a labor of love and perfected over several months. Each hemlock is freely drawn and hand-sawn from sterling silver-- with all edges, nooks & crannies filed and smoothed. I've built a solid frame that each tree is soldered onto which completely encases a stone that peeps through in the background. You can be assured that no two are alike and each one is an original design borrowed from the very first piece I've ever made.
Brushed texture with a steel wool finish for a little bit of shine. Hand applied details. Light, waxed patina for contrast of details. Substantial in its look and feel, yet lightweight for all day comfort.
Reversible Earring Design: One side is your hemlock tree with turquoise peep through, and the other side showcases the turquoise simply set. I've made the ear wires in a way so you can reverse the body of the earring for whichever side you would like to show off! The earring body cannot come off the ear wire while it'e being worn.
Measurements: 5/8" across the body. 2" from top of ear wire to bottom of earring.
Shipping: Please expect shipping within one week of your purchase.
The Jewelry of Broken Pine: The items I make are one-of-a-kind pieces of reclaimed precious metals. There are no templates or molds used in any part of my fabrication process. There are inconsistencies and natural character that will make every piece of jewelry truly unique for you, and should be appreciated and expected. I forge, hammer, saw, solder, tweak, twist, stamp, texture and polish everything by hand. Please be sure of your jewelry preferences and sizes before purchasing. Measurements and sizes are very detailed. Please refer to the Policy & Resources section for the finer details. Your purchase constitutes agreement of my shop policies.
*Reclaimed metals: all precious metals used have already served a purpose in a previous life, and that metal has been purely recaptured to be used again to create new. No metal has been freshly mined to create your jewelry.
