Barnacle Cluster Earrings

Using 10 miss-matched diamonds my customer inherited years ago - these earrings were made to go with a wedding set of barnacle rings I made for her previously(see that HERE).

Hand-carved and cast from wax using the lost wax casting process and recycled sterling silver, oxidized to bring out each detail ~ including my thumb print here and there.
The back is detailed with the shape of a heart, outlined from a sentimental trinket from her husband long ago. These earrings are custom heirlooms reimagined, designed to remind the wearer of a life full of love.
