Chip Earrings #9
Polymer, 22K gold wire, 3/4 x 3 3/4 x 1/8″. These earring were done as part of a collaboration with Teresa Faris, a metalsmith in Madison, WI. We told her that she couldn’t solder next to polymer because it would burn, so he devised an ingenious way to daisy-chain together the polymer pieces using 22K gold wire. These earrings are lively and extremely lightweight.
