These earrings were inspired by my Japanese heritage and the Japanese aesthetic of wabi sabi, the idea that there is beauty in the imperfect. Thus when I was making them I wanted to try to create a sense of wabi sabi by offsetting the amethysts and the gold lines and the silver squares are slightly off square and lightly textured. But in bringing them all together, they are beautiful! Just as in life, there is beauty in imperfection, you just need to see it. Lovely as day to night earrings they are subtle and complicated.
