There's No Place Like Home

My friend Patty and her sisters grew up in the best world. I love hearing their stories! They lived in an old bank complete with tin ceilings - their parents were both entrepreneurs and raised the girls on a shoestring. They say their mom could make anything out of anything... Recently Patty showed me a piece of crumpled tin ceiling she had discovered in the pile of the now demolished bank building. I was honored when she asked me to make earrings for her and her sisters. I kept the design simple by cutting and polishing the tin and adding different colors of faceted rutilated quartz. Thank you for trusting me with this project, Patty!
