Teardrop Milky Way Earrings By Nora Julia
Nora designs, forms, files, saws, fuses, hammers, and polishes every piece of jewelry by hand. She mainly works with Argentium sterling silver - a hypoallergenic, highly tarnish resistant silver alloy guaranteed to be made using 100% recycled metal.
Each filigree piece takes multiple hours to complete - forming every wire shape individually and ensuring they fit into the outline without overcrowding is a precise art. While the jewelry looks delicate, the joining of the wires forms a surprisingly strong web of silver.
Torch fired enamel on Argentium Silver. Transparent enamel allows light to reflect off the high polished silver backing, creating a brilliant pop of color.
