This pair of rabbit earrings is largely inspired by the little animals surrounding my rural home and the ones that have gotten caught by cats, only to have their body parts hoarded like treasure and left at the doorstep for their unfortunate recipient to find. I used beads and pearls as the blood as a way of representing the coexistence of beauty and decay within nature.

I painted the rabbits with watercolor enamel over a base coat of enamel and then re-fired them to a glossy finish. I used mostly red beads --a mixture of glass and seed beads-- to mimic blood spilling out, and added a few freshwater pearls to represent maggots starting to creep their way out of the head.

The ear wires are sterling silver.
