ABOUT THE PIECE
The Sunrise ear jackets were inspired by the cotton candy skies in an Arizona sunset. Ear jackets are extra versatile, and are truly, two pairs of earrings in one.
An ear jacket is an earring set with a component that goes behind the earlobe along with an earring post or stud. This provides some extra dimension to the design and overall look. The design part of the jacket rests just below the lobes of the ear when worn. The jacket component is constructed with a hole in the center to allow the earring post to go through the ear first, and then the jacket behind the ear. This set can also be worn without the jacket component, just as the sunstone studs alone. The sunstone studs are accented with hand crafted details surrounding the cabochons. Each slit is hand sliced with a jewelers saw.

A NOTE ON WEAR

A NOTE ON THE ARTIST & HAND MADE JEWELRY
Annie, the one woman show behind The Crested Saguaro, began her metalsmithing journey in early 2021 and is very excited to bring her new craft to Mama Wunderbar, where people can enjoy and wear her jewelry out in the world.
No element of these ear jackets are cast or pre-manufactured. Special focus went into crafting the textures and details. Each piece was created by hand from sterling silver wire and sheet metal, carefully cut out with a handheld jewelers saw, and manually soldered together with a jewelers torch.
Please understand that handmade items are never ‘perfect’ in the way assembly-line products are. You will find that every piece will vary subtly in terms of color, shape, texture, polish and metal finish.
