Design Challenges
The biggest challenge was how to recreate what was happening in the sky to a the design in a computer as a model and to actually try to capture that same beauty. The design had to be created in a way that the casting would be able to build the whole earring in parts and still maintain the integrity of the unique structure and shape. Cleaning and polishing the parts is time consuming and requires care since it will be showing, but well worth the effort. After the parts are completed, a laser welder is used in the next phase. The utmost care is needed in order not to damage the previous steps of the work already done. From whatever angle one looks at the earrings, the earrings appears as if it were a different design, that is one of the elements that make these earrings unique.
