Starfish or sea stars as they are now called, have always been sea creatures of endless fascination around the world. I remember swimming in the Channel Islands outside Ventura, CA and getting up close and personal with these awe inspiring beings. I love their the nubby texture and liquid movement but the best feature for an artist is that the colors of sea stars are virtually innumerable. I looked up natural colors of sea stars to inspire the color design of these earrings. I don't usually use purple and orange for ocean inspired designs so this was a special treat. I added tiny silver foil circles for a little dazzle.
The backs of the earrings are a medium blue unless you request otherwise. I make the ear wires from sterling silver.
length of earring: 1 1/2"

Note: Enamel is fired glass. It is sturdy but can crack or break if dropped onto a hard surface or crushed under something. Please treat these handmade enamel items with care and they will have a long, happy life. Please note that copper enameled items will form an oxidized layer on the edges. This is normal as the copper edges are exposed to air.
