This filigree design, nautilus shape pair of earrings is made of sterling silver, decorated with green and blue enamel.
The patterned earring is inspired by a natural form, but it incorporates the motifs of organic culture.
The earrings are small series, handdrawn and then cast pieces, they are 40 mm long (with the hook) and 15 mm wide. Each pendant alone is a 30 mm x 15 mm piece, the hooks are also made of sterling silver and are kidney ear wires which means you won't lose them because they close on the bottom of the back of the earrings!
What makes it especially beautiful is the lacey fantasy nautilus design which, when cast into this beautiful sterling silver jewel, is really light weight, simple and gorgeous.
Here in Intuita shop, we have not met yet an artist who fuses enamel with sterling silver. The reason it is so rare is that enamel starts to melt at only a slightly lower degree (750-850 degrees Celcius) than silver (961.8 degree Celcius). That means that you have to be incredibly cautios and attentive so that the two material don't melt together into a big mess.
