Aster Stud Earrings, 22k Gold and Oxidized Sterling Silver
Rich gold aster remnants are set on a background of dark oxidized sterling silver. The contrast is striking. Asters are made in 22k gold. Ear posts are 14k gold. These lovely stud earrings measure approximately 1/2" in diameter.
Aster texture is from winter aster remnants after the petals have fallen away and the seeds have dispersed. It's like a smaller version of the larger flower that existed during summer. Just another beauty of the plant diversity of the prairie in each season.
