Mended Domed Earrings
$120.00 – $250.00
Brushed sterling silver dome earrings with hand sawn crack and a 14 karat gold mending stitch. The patina’d silver is noticeable contrasted by the yellow gold. These earring are light weight and hang comfortably from the ear, making them perfect for everyday wear. 1 1/4″ total length. Earwire options are solid gold or gold-fill. Each hand sawn crack is unique, like our own flaws, so no two will be alike.
Mending reminds me of genteelness. It can, at times, feel as painful as the cracks themselves, but there is a beauty within the process and must be done with the same delicacy and compassion as with a cherished heirloom. Mending requires that we take notice of the need for repair. To recognize that need, we are beckoned, first, to acknowledge the cracks.
