Kristina Kada's art studio rests amid the quiet redwoods in the mountains of Santa Cruz. Inspired by her surroundings, her Japanese heritage, and the many shapes found in botanical forms and architecture, Kristina layers simple elements in repetition to build up richly textured patterns and produce interesting forms. Her classic jewelry techniques employ steel stakes, saw piercing and a hydraulic press to meld freehand elements with original castings.
Destined to be your new favorite pair of earrings, these simple, charcoal "twigs" hold three scattered, silver sakura (cherry blossom) petals. Cherry blossoms symbolize the fleeting, transient beauty of life and the passing nature of all things.
Oxidized sterling silver earrings with matte sterling accents are 1/8" w x 1 7/8" l and include the artist's special signature stamp on the back. Made in the USA.
