These lapis and sterling earrings started out as an experiment.
I made a leaf stamp out of tool steel and wanted to try doing something different with it.
I stamped a pattern on sterling silver sheet, then sawed around the outline of the shape and domed it.
I did not know what color or shape of stone I would use, so I tried out a number of stones.
When I put the oval lapis stones on the domed pieces, it was meant to be!
