Mojito Mint Leaf Earrings
Handcrafted in Livingston, MT by Maria Gotta of Nest Studio Art. From her Nature Inspired Series, these beautiful earrings are made using mint leaves. The mint leaf really creates a gorgeous texture. These earrings have a slight patina to bring out the texture and dimension of the leaf. The earrings hang on handcrafted sterling silver ear wires.
- Each earring measures 1 1/2" long.
- Hangs from long, handcrafted sterling silver ear wires.
Maria's original silver jewelry is created using PMC (precious metal clay). PMC is made with microscopic particles of pure silver and an organic binder. After she molds and textures the silver clay, the piece is then dried and fired in a kiln. While in the kiln the organic binder, that is the clay, burns off and what is left is 99.9% silver. Each piece is then buffed to a shiny silver and has a patina to bring out the natural texture of the impression. Once the piece is finished, she adorns each pendant with a leather cord and a sterling silver extension chain and clasp, while the earrings receive handcrafted ear wires. Since each piece is handmade, imperfections will exist. This contributes to each piece's own uniqueness.
