The Solar Eclipse Verdigris
Curvilinear and feminine, The Solar Eclipse is a sculptural style earring with overlapping circular medallions. Created with horsehair that is ethically gathered by Native American artisans across the United States.
Verdigris or ‘green of Greece’ is a dazzling form of metallic pigmentation used since the Middle Ages to give metals a bluish-green patina through a process called atmospheric oxidation. My technique involves combining sea salt and natural oxidants to achieve a unique shade.
This new version of The Solar Eclipse is available in solid natural white, turmeric or madder root dyed horsehair. As always, materials ethically sourced from artisans of Caddo Nation.
* Please note this is a hand-dyed item so variations in tone and color are normal.
