Classic Glass Earrings by Amy Faust
Vintage glass is hand cut into "gemstones" and softly etched for a glowing, matte, beach glass finish. The glass is cold worked by hand with lapidary equipment. Earring settings are fabricated in recycled sterling and fine silver, the solid backings roller-printed for added textural interest. Each earring is signed by the artist..75"
Handmade in Oakland, CA
Trained as a metalsmith and inspired by nature and classical art and modernist design I am drawn to simplicity, and wearability and make pieces that can be both dressed up or worn daily. Something you can feel great wearing again and again.Each piece is a composite of recycled sterling silver, repurposed colorful, mostly vintage glass, special beach pebbles and porcelain with imagery of birds and farmland, which become a talisman of what we need to hold onto and protect.
