Real mimosa flower leaves. Pressed in a book and preserved with epoxy resin inside these little triple infinity raw brass frames.
"When I consider the small span of my life absorbed in the eternity of all time or the small part of space which I can't touch or see engulfed by the infinite immensity of space that I know not and know me not. I am frightened and astonished to see myself here instead of there...now instead of then."- 𝘉𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘴𝘦 𝘗𝘢𝘴𝘤𝘢𝘭
Think of the center of this triple infinity piece as the present time, the "here", instead of "there", imagine the top and bottom loop as the past and the future, they are the "there and then". We all have the ability to time travel with just our thoughts. On days you find yourself on a train to the past or full speed ahead, maybe these earrings could aid you with centering yourself by just rubbing the center of these earrings you could jump off that train. You can bring yourself back to the now, the here, that is If you decide to.
Saw these leaves one afternoon while looking out my office window, hanging over the fence waving at me, in my backyard. Never depleting a plant fully, I gathered a handful of these greens and pressed them in one of my books.
I'd never noticed this plant before but from doing some research I learned that these are Mimosa leaves. When you touch them they close to protect their pollen and reduce water loss. So trying to flatten them can be a bit tricky.
Designs are carefully put together with intend to bring colorful and elegant pieces into your everyday look. These greens are coated with a matte black background to make them pop and bring out their beautiful details.
All metal materials used here are raw brass. Earring hooks used are hypoallergenic material. These hooks are made from brass and are coated with 14k gold, all hooks are, lead-free, nickel-free, and, cadmium-free. The hooks I use are all durable and won't fade easily.
