These heavily textured larger style brass studs are patterned with a repeated circular pattern reminiscent of a found fossil.
These earrings have large decorative silver butterfly backs. No pair is identical.
About the Maker
Each individual piece is handmade by artisan Jane Hodgetts in her studio in Hobart, Tasmania.
With a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts, Jane uses her skills and insight as an artist, particularly the textures and mark making of a printmaker, to develop work that is far from the polished jewellery of the mainstream.
The handcrafted pieces show traces of process, irregular shapes, hammer marks, naturally pertained brass and rubbed back painted surfaces. It is the acceptance of the imperfections in her work that Jane considers a subtle rebellion against the more polished mainstream, that she considers its strength and uniqueness.
