I spent most of my childhood with a nickname Sunshine. And these custom enamel earrings, all sapphire and tangerine, pay homage to that. But, the design itself was inspired by Aristotle’s Rhetoric. Though he described three types of artistic persuasion in that essay, it’s the one called “Awakening Emotion” that caught my eye. Also known as Pathos, this type of persuasion focuses on using people’s emotions as a catalyst for change. I wanted to create a piece that affected people emotionally. I hope that just looking at these earrings is enough to fill people with the sun’s warmth.
Created using my trademark two-sided enameling technique, Pathos shows a brilliant sunburst on one side. The sun’s rays are frozen in their attempts to reach the 22k gold rim. On the other side, the sun is displayed in all its glory. Perfect for the working woman, these custom enamel earrings remind us that optimism can crack even the thickest glass ceilings.
- Features a unique design on each side
- Though the orange and blue enamel stand out, it’s the 22k gold accents that set these custom enamel earrings apart
