mother's day gift

mother's day earrings, sterling silver, xavier trahan 2011
i'm posting a photo of my favorite earrings, created by my 15 yr-old son for this mother's day/ my birthday. they're so very earthy, rustic and organic! he's been soldering for the past several years, apprenticing in my studio, but this was his first time soldering wire to a larger hunk of metal--what a great job!
