Jennifer Wells

Trumpet Earrings

Materials:  Steel wire, sterling silver

Dimensions: 5 x 2 x 2 inches

Working with the steel wire I create forms that are representative of the flora and fauna I am surrounded by. These forms become wall pieces, jewelry and little table top objects that allow me to create a garden and in doing so a home wherever my travels take me.
