Asymmetrical | Mismatched Earrings
How Asymmetrical | Mismatched Earrings were born!!
Asymmetrical | Mismatched Earrings story – long version – John was returning from a long trip, and we had made plans to go out for a good evening. We spent most of the night on the dance floor. And suddenly I discovered, too late, that one of my Sterling Silver hoops was missing. After much futile searching, we went home and I pouted about it all night long. After all, it was one of my very favorites and expensive to boot!!
The next morning I ventured out for a snack and the restaurant owner leaned over and told me how much he loved “my earring.” I forgot I even had it on, but the more I walked around with just one hoop in, the more everyone seemed to think it was intentional. In fact, I got more compliments on the single hoop than I ever had for the matching pair.
This was not the first time I had misplaced an earring. I referred to the survivors lovingly as orphans, and before I knew it, I was wearing imperfect asymmetrical sets all the time. I was not alone. Anyone who has ever lost a hoop on the dance floor is probably right now enjoying their very own set. The mismatched-earring trend is everywhere now and I think it might be here to stay!!
As a jewelry designer, I felt compelled to join the crowd and offer my interpretation of the Asymmetrical Earring.
My Asymmetrical | Mismatched Earrings are one of a kind and created using Sterling Silver and Argentium Silver. I personally hand cut the metal and wire used in this design. The Sterling Silver and Argentium wire surface has been gently hammered and formed as well as stamped with my favorite spiral stamp. Sterling metal was cut to size, dapped and formed prior to soldering it to the wire surface. My designs are organic in appearance, therefore this Asymmetrical Mismatched pair is no exception. You will notice texture, design and shapes all define this special pair of earrings as organic and I hope you enjoy them. In addition to texturing, a patina is added to enhance the beauty and reflect the light in the small crevices.
In summary, the earrings hang approximately 2 1/2 inches from the top of the sterling silver ear wire and are 3/4 wide at the widest part.
I personally love this style and why wouldn’t I? I am a Gemini after all and twins are my sign — not identical twins however, so they fit right in. Great conversation starters for you or your mom, friend, aunt, grandma or yourself – you choose.
