These Julep Earring designs grew from my desire to fabricate with natural textures that evoke specific emotions. I was drawn to mint because to me it feels refreshing and celebratory. Molds made from actual leaves can be recreated in a variety of metals. The cast mint leaves can be fabricated into iconic shapes or remain simply as leaves that adorn the body. As in nature the metal leaves vary in size ranging from 1/4″ x 5/8″ to 1/2″ x 3/4″.
