Willow twig earrings, blackened, budding twig jewelry

My budding willow twig, now a simple, elegant earring.

These earrings are absolutely perfect for any occasion. They are certain to be a favorite everyday earring!

I molded the original twigs from willow branches I found along California's coast. They were just budding out, so lovely!

I manipulated the waxes into a almost mirrored pair, then had them cast in sterling silver. I soldered handmade wires to the branches. Carefully I polished the earrings and darkened them to show maximum texture.

Earrings hang 1 1/4" long, including wire. Wires are 20 gauge. I can also make these in 18 gauge, just convo me and I will make you a pair.
