Mosaic Double Earrings. These unique earrings are made using the classical lost wax technique “with a twist” — the rough cut emerald is placed directly into the wax and then cast into brass creating a seamless effect between the stone and metal. Sterling silver ear wires. Designed and individually handmade by Emilie Shapiro.

Emilie Shapiro – Artist Bio
Emilie grew up on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, where water has always been her constant and inspiration.
She uses the ancient craft of lost wax casting which dates back to the Egyptians. The process involves carving sculptural pieces into hard wax and casting them into metal. Emilie incorporates rough gemstones into her work as a celebration of the beauty of natural imperfection. All production and resources are kept as local as possible, and every piece is handmade in Emilie’s New York City studio.
