Stripped enameled steel earrings with toumaline. Each is 7/8" square with oxidized sterling silver hooks by Silverfish Designs of Michigan.
Hand-formed metal clay is fired first for the form of each jewelry piece. Then each is enameled and placed back in the kiln. The result is a dynamic and durable jewelry line that is a joy to wear.
“After attending art school in the 1980s I have made a living for 25 years in the dental field. Creativity can only be suppressed so long and began creeping out demanding my attention again. 8 years ago I began making jewelry, mainly using the magical medium of metal clay, while sitting under my silver leafed stuffed salmon on the wall of my studio. Thus began Silverfish Designs” — JULIE BILLUPS Grand Rapids, MI
