Fig Leaf Bronze Earring
Hand forged bronze Fig Leaf earring with gold filled ear wire; 2.5 inches.
Julie was inspired by the intricate Otomi embroideries of Oaxaca, Mexico featuring floral and fauna themes. The textiles were translated into hand fabricated bronze adornments.
As a child of the 70's, Julie grew up doing a myriad of crafts with her sister, including embroidery, sewing and other textile projects. This interest continues today, as she collects indigenous textiles during her travels.
The Studio looks out on a garden and a fig tree stands just outside the door. The Fig Leaf Earrings encompasses themes from Otomi florals as well as the botanical specimens in the garden.
