Each individual jewellery design is handmade by artisan Jane Hodgetts in her studio in Hobart, Tasmania.
These small, circular, lightweight sterling silver earrings are slightly oxidised to emphasis the heavily textured surface created by hammering and stamping randomly placed small holes. Dimensions 2.5cm drop and 1cm at the widest point.
Jane aims for her work to show traces of process, irregular shapes, hammer marks, naturally patined brass and rubbed back painted surfaces. It is the acceptance of the imperfections in her work that she considers a subtle rebellion against the more polished mainstream, that she considers its strength and uniqueness.
