Clear photo earrings: handmade with acrylic, resin and a photograph of a tree taken in Victoria, BC. 1-1/2" tall. Sterling silver kidney ear wires.
Vancouver island Photographer Jade Pellerin has created “Photograph Jewelry”. Each piece of jewelry contains a clear photograph sealed in acrylic resin.
Each piece starts with one of my photographs. My inspirations are nature and the city and the shapes and silhouettes that they create – and my own ways to find peace and a space for myself within each. I live in Vancouver, BC where there is plenty of both city and nature.
In 2005 I was fortunate to have the chance to work in a silversmith’s studio where I learned about making jewellery as well as many aspects of running a business.
In 2008 I began displaying my photography in jewellery, which allowed me to combine by experience in jewellery making and love of photography and a lifetime of making art for myself to create something of my own.
Black Drop has grown so much since then and every day I appreciate that my passion has become my career.
