Some of my fondest memories are of Buddhist temples my husband and I visited in Thailand. The temples feature beautiful, multi-tiered rooflines that are exquisitely designed. The roofs are filled with bells, whose soft, alluring jingle represents heaven and earth.
Those traditional Thai temples inspired these earrings. I created a chandelier-like sterling silver earring, longer than any other earring I've made. I then formed and forged the earring in a three-tiered design like the temple roofs. Rather than bells, I hung strands of faceted seed beads from the rooflines.
