Circle Stud Earrings
The Circle Stud Earrings by Karen Balliet are handmade in a sterling silver and gold Keum Boo. Karen uses 24kt recycle gold foil during her Keum Boo process, which is an ancient Korean practice of gilding gold onto silver. The gold Circle Stud Earrings are available in the patina sterling silver or the dark antiqued sterling silver. The sterling silver Circle Stud Earrings have a patina which adds an additional shine and texture to the silver. These studs are a simple, elegant style great for every day or the workplace. They measure 0.25" in diameter.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
As a therapist and mother of two children, sculpting with copper started as a meditative hobby that brought balance to my work. Over time I began making my own jewelry because I couldn’t find designs that represented who I was.
I enjoy learning about silver, copper, gold and their chemical reactions to sulfur, acid, heat, and binding agents. Being a self-taught artist lends a freedom of process that shapes my pieces. Discovering unique forms, textures and patinas through experimentation will always be thrilling and holds endless possibilities.
My designs balance contemporary and minimalist influences with an organic essence. Some of my forms, the Egg and the Bird’s Nest, are inspired by the female. Wearing these shapes, made of metals from the earth, is a celebration of strength shared by women. The therapist in me hopes my pieces empower the wearer.
