:: White Tank ::

I keep returning to the fantastic landscape of the White Tank area in Joshua Tree National Park for inspiration. The lines and forms of the white granite there take the most elegantly beautiful shapes I have ever seen. These earrings evoke the layered stone and sunlight that make the place so memorable.

Clustered at the top are three discs, one of antique New Guinea shell currency, another of ancient white quartz from North Africa, and a third of bronze clay, impressed with a fossil fish vertebra. Hanging below are triangular forms of fused fine silver, hammered on desert rock, and bronze clay impressed with fossil brachiopods.

Everything is on wrapped connectors of sterling silver, hammered, oxidized and hand finished, with freshwater pearls adorning some of the links, and vintage Orissa, India brass beads on others.

The sterling ear wires are similarly handmade.

SIZE: 4 1/8” x 1 1/4”.

CARE:  Rinse with cool water and gently blot dry to clean. They can be brightened with a silver polishing cloth. Should the shell or quartz pick up dark contact marks from the metal, it can be easily removed with a cotton swap dipped in rubbing alcohol.
