The Cerise Statement Earring

Regular price $118.00

The "Cerise" statement earring is inspired by the casual romance and innocence of foraged wild florals. Featuring yellow-gold oversized sprigs adorned with tiny, handmade ceramic flowers, the Cerise statement earring evokes the fanciful, ornamental mood of the 18th century Rococo art movement.
The Cerise (meaning “cherry”) earring was inspired by the small white and pink blossoms of cherry trees that sprout in late March, marking the end of gloomy wintertime. Cherry blossoms have weaved in and out of my art for years and now have manifested in the form of a dramatic and beautiful statement earring. Growing up in Huntsville, Alabama, I have vivid memories of the iconic cherry trees in Big Spring Park and how they were a sign of the promise of new life - that spring was coming and winter dead was gone.
The cherry blossom branch is such an interesting and beautiful linear addition to spring arrangements and one of my favorites for a “foraged wildflower” look that has an easy, casual elegance. This is the mood of the Cerise earring - beautiful and unpretentious.

“What might our ancient attraction for flowers have to teach us about the deeper mysteries of beauty — what one poet has called ‘this grace wholly gratuitous’? Is that what it is? Or does beauty have a purpose?”
- Michael Pollan, The Botany of Desire

“Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.”
A. E. Housman

Size: 3.5"

Made of high fire ceramic stoneware and glazed with high fire glaze, then a low fire gold luster overglaze in 22K. 

We recommend gently hand washing with a microfiber cloth as 22k gold is a soft, precious metal and harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaning products can scratch it over time.

Framed Intaglios & Originals 

I recommend a dry environment away from extreme temperatures. Use soft microfiber cloth for dusting and wiping the glass.


Ceramic Picture Frames

Each piece is made of low fire clay and needs to be handled with care. Clean the inside and outside by laying the frame and gently wipe with microfiber cloth.

Ceramic Jewelry Care

Jewelry pieces are made from clay with 22k gold luster accents, read the product listing to learn more about the jewelry chain or earring posts. Due to the nature of being made from clay they are fragile and should be handled with care. In order to ensure the longevity of each piece I recommend avoiding sleeping with, swimming with, or shower with the jewelry. 


Fine Jewelry Care

Sterling Silver Widow's Mite

While cleaning this piece be gentle with the 22k gold luster ceramic widow's mite coin that’s encased by sterling silver. Clean the sterling silver by rinsing well in clear hot water and hand-dry immediately and thoroughly. For silver that is tarnished, clean with a good quality silver polish and avoid "dip" polishes. 

Diamond Meredith 

This necklace is meant to be worn however we recommend taking it off if you are swimming, showering, or playing contact sports.

Clean the necklace by mixing a small amount of mild dish detergent with warm water in a bowl. Put the jewelry into the bowl and let sit for a few minutes, and then use a very soft, dedicated toothbrush to gently scrub the jewelry. Remove the necklace charm from soapy water, rinse it and dry thoroughly with a soft polishing cloth.
