These earrings are simple in design and are nice and light, perfect for everyday wear. Made with 100% recycled sterling silver and clear enamel. For this range of jewellery, I am inspired by working with the metal and its reactions to the heat of my torch flame. I utilise the technique of reticulation, where the metal surface melts and bubbles up creating beautiful and unexpected patterns and textures.
The backing card is 35mm wide and 70mm high
Foundry Silver - Jill Hermans
The Foundry Silver range is made by Jill Hermans. She completed her Honours degree in Fine Arts at Monash University in 2009 and has since moved back to East Gippsland to enjoy a sustainable lifestyle, off grid, in the bush. Her practice is materials, processes and techniques driven, finding endless fascination in the reactions between metals, oxides, enamel and flame.
