Mushroom Earrings

Statement: When I go for my forest walks during the fall and spring, I often come across dried mushrooms that are detached from trees/their stems. These two mushrooms were next to each other and seemed as though they were waiting to be picked up and kept together. They were very lightweight, quite similar, and beautiful on all sides, so I turned them into earrings so that they may be viewed from all angles. To make sure that they would be cohesive, I took brass and created crinkles in the wire to mimic the mushroom’s organic naturel
