Banksia Hoop Earrings - Gold
10k Gold with 14k Gold Posts and Earring Backs
1" L x 11/16" W
These incredibly light yet bold hoop earrings are inspired by the Australian Banksia Pod. They were hand carved in wax and then cast in 10k Gold. My work distills and reinterpret nature’s diverse patterns, textures, forms and imperfections.
In regions prone to fire, many plants and trees evolve some remarkable adaptions which ensure the survival of their species. One such adaption includes the ability to harness the heat and smoke of fires to help disperse their seeds. The Banksia are reliant on both fire and water, as the follicles only split open to release the seeds after they are burned by fire and then soaked by the rains that follow. These clustered openings, or seed chambers, are visually captivating and inspired a number of pieces in my Dispersion collection. Nature is amazing.
