Blind Dovetail Earrings


I used to live in Minneapolis. I’d like to forget most of that time, but I took a dovetailing class while I was there. I was the only woman in the class and it was my first woodworking experience since middle school. I paid homage to that experience with golden dovetail detail on the back of each earring.

Materials: sterling silver, 14k yellow gold, 22k yellow gold, and Australian boulder opals.

Measurements: approx. 1 3/8” long by 3/4” wide.
