Verdant - Handmade Silver Earrings

220.00

From Merriam Webster:

English speakers have been using "verdant" as a ripe synonym of "green" since the late 16th century, and as a descriptive term for inexperienced or naive people since the 1820s. (By contrast, the more experienced "green" has colored our language since well before the 12th century, and was first applied to inexperienced people in the 1540s.) "Verdant" is derived from the Old French word for "green," vert, which in turn is from Latin virērē, meaning "to be green." Today, "vert" is used in English as a word for green forest vegetation and the heraldic color green. Another descendant of "virere" is the adjective virescent, meaning "beginning to be green."

So yeah I guess these are just “green earrings” but fancy.

Each one-of-a-kind piece is truly unique. I usually start with a gemstone or an idea and build from there. The gemstone tells me what to make, or the idea guides me, and I draw up some sketches. Then I start sawing, filing, and soldering the pieces of metal together. I set the stone, polish it, and it’s ready to go out into the world. Each piece is handmade from a combination of recycled sterling silver, recycled 14k yellow gold, and semi-precious gemstones.

 

- All earring wires, posts, and backs are sterling silver
