The North Carolina state flower, the dogwood, is reimagined in this recycled sterling silver necklace and modernized in a matte, brushed finish. Each piece is hand-sawed from a recycled silver sheet, then etched and brushed to a smooth matte finish. It hangs on a smooth, sterling silver 18" chain.
Ginna Earls grew up along the Haw River in Bynum, and she has always loved making tiny things. She moved up north to study sculpture in college, but eventually returned to North Carolina where she opened a store to sell her work under the name Vespertine. In 2017, she decided to close the store and delve deeper into her jewelry- and ceramics-making. She individually cuts, solders, and textures each piece. Nature inspires Ginna, and botanical themes thread through her work. She can be found working from her home studio in rural Chatham County.
Made in North Carolina.
