These Grade-A Faceted Sapphires are set in 18 Karat Gold. Dangling below are two pieces of Blue Slag set in oxidized Sterling Silver. These reclaimed pieces of slag are a by-product of smelting iron in which raw ore is heated and the desired iron ore is collected. When the impurities cool this waste material is formed.
I believe in reclaiming things. Things that, even though beautiful, may normally be cast aside. I like giving the reclaimed a new life in a one of a kind piece of jewelry. I especially enjoy combining them with the things our society deems precious, in this case, sapphires and gold. I think of these earrings as Talismans of Unity. A uniting of the two sides, the precious and the pieces that were almost cast aside.
