These fabulous earrings were donated by Laura Jane Bouton.
While putting this post together, I wanted to learn a little more about the artist behind these and here is what Laura has said:
I come from a very artistic family, therefore it was natural for me to eventually take on a creative path in my life. I was born in the United States, however for the past 25 years I have been living in Italy with my husband, son, and 3 new family members, 2 dogs and a cat. I am a part time swimming instructor and a self taught jewelry maker. I started making jewelry in my garage out of pure passion, mostly because I love to wear jewelry, especially earrings. This beautiful country has inspired and influenced much of my work. I use different metalsmith techniques, forging, form folding, enameling, soldering, cold connections, and wire wrapping. It is just amazing when you can take a flat piece of metal and turn it into something 3 dimensional and wear it too
