Shadow Earrings

Previous  Up  Next" 
These shadow earrings are based on an architectural ornament found on a bridge in Salzburg, Austria. The art deco bridge was actually one of the bridges the children and Julie Andrews danced across in the movie, The Sound of Music. The earrings are made from hand-cut sterling silver and are folded in half during making. Part of each earring is oxidized (blackened) to highlight the shadow effect created by the cutout form.

Price: $170.00
