These are 100% Copper, including the ear pieces which I styled to follow the curves of the earrings.

They are inspired by my heritage, the Taino people of the Caribbean. I used their symbol for “The Supremacy of God” and came up with these.

I love working in wire! I especially like copper, brass, and silver. I like that the wire basically leads my design.

Even though I use symbols as inspiration, sometimes the wire does what it wants to do and there is no point fighting it.

I have always had a connection to wire; as far back as six. I played with telephone wires and made rings with them. I loved making butterflies!

Now, I’m trying to use this medium to make more sophisticated pieces. They always carry a message: one that is positive and uplifting.

I hope you like them!
