The design for Shadow Earrings came to me on a casual Sunday when I was exiting a deep day dream. As I began to focus on my surroundings I saw a subtle sway in my peripheral. My neighbors tree was casting a simple design of leaves on my wall. This intrigued me because the distance of the tree and the real shape of the leaves aren’t comparable to the shadow. I quickly began to sketch the design, which I later recreated on my computer to 3D print. I wanted these earrings to protrude from the ear, allowing a shadow to cast on your body as it did on my wall. Hopefully causing a moment of reflection.
