Hot Off The Bench: Enso Earrings!
Handmade, Recycled, Fine & Sterling Silver, Mixed Metal, Hammered, Textured, Round, Eco-Friendly Design
My latest design just finished this morning! – https://www.etsy.com/listing/161559560/ahimsa-artisan-classic-earrings-handmade
The beauty is in the details.
Sterling silver discs surrounded by fused pure silver wire shaped into a 1” circle. The pure silver circle has a delicate hammered finish that beautifully reflects glimmers of light. The sterling discs have a satin finish applied with the Dremel grinder and then domed. The stationary discs complement their surrounding free flowing circles with a different texture and shimmer.
The inspiration for these earrings…
Ensō, a Japanese word meaning circle, symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and the void. In Zen Buddhist painting, ensō symbolizes a moment when the mind is free to simply let the body/spirit create. One of the key principles in Japanese aesthetic is controlling the balance of composition through asymmetry and irregularity. The denial of perfection is a concept that speaks strongly to me as an artist, a mom and a spiritual seeker.
