This pair of swans is inspired by a swan couple that lived in a canal near where I went to college. They could be seen out and about together most days, until one was horribly killed by someone, leaving its mate all alone. I think of these earrings as mourning jewelry for the swans and animals in general whose lives are cut short due to the cruelty of people.

I painted the swans with watercolor enamel over a base coat of enamel and then re-fired them to a glossy finish. I used mostly a mixture of red glass and seed beads to subtly mimic blood spilling out, and to also add some regality to the pair.

The ear wires are sterling silver.
