Due to all the heavy rains our basement has flooded. I’m taking a break from orders as we work to restore the space.

These earrings will quickly become one of your favorite accessories! Each encaustic earring is unique, lightweight, and earth friendly.

Encaustic is a wax-based paint made of beeswax, resin, and pigment. It is applied while in a molten state onto the substrate and fused with a torch. Wax sealer is then applied.

These earrings drop 2.25 inches and are 1 inch across. They feature blue, white, green, and orange under coloring. Purple ink was then applied and burned off to reveal the under coloring. 

These encaustic earrings were created using a process I developed to create a substrate using salvaged items including chipboard, wood, or birch bark. The chipboard used for this pair of earrings was sourced from a used coffee carrier from Caribou Coffee. The back has been reinforced with glue.

These are fine art encaustic earrings and should be handled carefully. They will not melt up to 150 degrees. 

The hardware is made of .935 Argentium® Silver whose benefits include:

  • Brighter and shinier than sterling silver
  • High tarnish resistance 
  • Stronger than sterling silver
  • Nickel free

It is strongly encouraged to wear the backings provided so an earring does not fall out.

These earrings were featured in my 2023 exhibition where I created encaustic earrings based off a 2D piece of art. See the last photo for the 2D piece I referenced.
