Nancy Linkin’s Flared Bronze Dangle Earrings are handmade from Bronze with 18 Karat Gold-filled ear wires. The sculptural contemporary earrings are 2.5” long and have a lush heat patina surface. To create her handmade jewelry, Nancy uses the anticlastic raising technique. Flat patterns are cut from sheets of gold and silver and hammered systematically over specialized tools. The final form is filed, sanded, and buffed to a high polish to accentuate the sculptural lines.
(Nancy Linkin passed away after a long fight with breast cancer in June 2019. In accordance with her wishes, Luke Sunde, her longtime friend and employee, and Liz Allen are continuing to produce her designs so that others may be inspired by the natural forms and fluid grace of her sculptural jewelry.)
