Binary Sunshine
Tribute to Pandora Series

Available ~ $90 + shipping

Some of you know how taken I am with the James Cameron movie, Avatar.  The artwork and technology behind the movie has fascinated me.  As a result, I felt it’s only natural that I have a new series of Art Jewelry, that I am calling my Tribute to Pandora Series.  How appropriate is it that the first in this series is called Binary Sunshine….now there is a mix of technology and nature for you!

These earrings are made of Sterling Silver with 24kt gold Keum Boo.  The design created by the Keum Boo represents one of the plants on Pandora that are known as Binary Sunshine.  I textured the sterling using a couple of different hammers to create the effect I wanted.  Once the metal was prepared, I fused the Keum Boo to the surface and then added a light oxidation to emphasize the gold and the texture of the sterling.  The ear wires are made of silver.  They are approximately 1 3/4″ long x 1/2″ wide.  I have several other earring designs in this new series, but I thought I would unveil the series with this pair.

I hope you like them and that they remind you just a bit of the beauty one can find in that mythical planet, Pandora.

Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
