Prismatica drop stud earrings
The inspiration for this series lies in the natural world, within the iridescent colours found in insects, birds and fish, but also the shimmer of a soap bubble or an oil puddle.
After almost a year of uncertainty Michelle picked up her carving tools again and just started cutting, digging and sanding away the balsa wood for hours in an almost meditative state. Followed by hours of applying layers upon layers of varnish and finding the exact right moment to rub in the colourful pigment so it sticks to the not quite dry varnish.
Are the colours attracting attention to fight invisibility or are they putting on a show, to hide a darkness underneath?
Weighing only a few grams each they are so light you’ll barely feel them and your earlobes will thank you!
