English Norman is an incredibly talented jewelry designer and craftsperson based in Atlanta, GA. She loves color, texture, and change. Color because she loves art. Texture because she loves silversmithing, combining metals, and creating a rich tary in her work. Change because she loves how flowers and plants bloom and grow, how designs evolve in her studio, and how one bit of art influences another. English’s lifelong love of color pervades her unique, brightly-colored hand-smithed jewelry crafted of Argentium silver, 14K goldfill, and faceted semi-precious stones. Her background in architecture is evident in her structural designs which are formed by hand-smithing Argentium silver or gold with an acetylene torch. English's Bespoke Bangles were recently featured in The Best of the City issue of The Atlantan magazine. The Name Collection includes the popular Bespoke Bangles and Necklaces allowing the wearer to hold children's names close to their hearts.
These base of these post earrings is a 3/4" Argentium silver textured circle. The resin pools are approximately 1/8" in profile and are filled with small batch pigmented resin tinted royal and pale blue. Blue topaz stones are exquisitely faceted in what is called an onion shape. These stones dangle beneath the post 1 1/4" and remind me a bit of a sea creature. Jellyfish, perhaps?
Remember the summer spent at the ocean with the beautiful jewelry in the Reef Ripples Series. Each piece recalls the waves and the sea as ripples of resin are contained in tidal pools of hand-smithed Argentium silver.
Healthy coral means a healthy world.
Each pendant is smithed by hand from a flat sheet of Argentium silver. As in the sea, the coral grows into a unique shape with its own personality. Each item in this series is a one of a kind piece.
Each piece is designed and handcrafted in our Atlanta, GA studio. Designs are copyrighted by ESN Artisan Jewelry, 1997-2018.View full product details
