This is the work of a jeweler friend of mine, Jane Frank. Oh, how I love collaboration. This is a really interesting intersection of re-use, master silver/goldsmith skills and connections. These earrings truly reflect the intersection of talent and vision of these two artists.
Yesterday I finished the prototype for earrings for Kara Greenblott`s Company—CBsacks (cbsacks.com). She locally produces handbags from coffee bean sacks from the local “Green Mountain Coffee Roasterie” and wanted to have some accessories made out of her leather leftovers. One side shows her leather and the other the burlap of the sacks.They are framed in sterling silver with a french hook. Many more variations will follow.
