Dwindling Autumn: First frost earrings with Rutilated Quartz in Sterling silver
These pieces are about finding beauty in Autumn's last foliage as well as the skeletal trees it leaves behind after it falls. Engravings of bare branches as they lie dormant until next spring are punctuated by golden glimmers of topaz and criss-crossed with Rutilated Quartz.
The first frost of the year coats the remaining crispy leaves and twigs. It's not snowy yet, but in the morning there are crystals that on the ground that give the ground cover an extra layer of crunch.
Drop-shaped rutilated quartz hangs from a darkened chain.
earrings are 1.5" long.
