mussel(sea salt) : earring stud
the deep swirls of charcoal & grey remind me of the rich colour of black sea salt.
molten glass is pressed into a uniquely hand-carved graphite mold to create the form of the mussel.
the flameworked glass is heated & formed directly on the stainless steel ear post & then annealed in a kiln.
approx. 12mm x 10mm
- stainless steel ear post & nut
