Simple forms of growth and function. Each Overgrowth spore grows outward and meets back at its foundation. Individually shaped, and soldered together in repetition these ghostly figures are made to represent the balance of life; growing outward, and coming back to the base for support.
Each Overgrowth Hoop is formed by hand from start to finish in sterling wire. The Hoops are given an overall gritty texture. They are then oxidized dark before receiving a matte finish allowing all of its rugged texture to show.
These solid pieces will last a lifetime.
These earrings are made to order.
My Overgrowth collection is a study of life and death; the cycles of abundance and loss. Skeletonized shapes full of life; weathered but strong.
I hope these ghostly figures will speak to you and allow you to recognize your own growth. Accept the cycles as they come, knowing that each peak and valley will be balanced out along the way.
Your earrings will come on a Laurel and Lime jewelry card, wrapped in tissue paper and carefully tucked inside a fabric gift bag.
