Oak leaf / coral leather earrings

Linocut making can get tiresome at times, especially when using an off-balanced printing press and the solution is manual pressure. Over the weekend I have thus enjoyed turning to more malleable and docile medium, that of leather. The result was yet another kind of long, soft, colorful earrings - the shape of which is inspired by that of the oak leaf, with its asymmetrical veins, but wearing the pair in black and red made me think of corals as well. Anyway, works open to interpretation are less boring. Another (un)intentional advantage is the fact that through wearing the pieces become 3D, with the tips turning in like in the case of an actual curved leaf. Even better! The earrings, in their various color variants, are available on my website HERE.
