Reef by Starlit-Sorceress Reef by Starlit-Sorceress
As soon as I saw these coral beads, I wanted to show them off with a pair of earrings. There was something about the naturally spongy chips that I just don't see in coral beads that are unnaturally round and polished smooth. With that in mind, I matched the red coral with a warm copper wire, forming the flowing branches of a coral reef with a rough texture technique that's impossible to perfectly duplicate. Also, by not making the earrings mirror-image copies of each other, I heightened the natural randomness of the piece.

Copper wire and coral chip beads. A little under two inches long.

The map in the photo is of Naalehu, Hawaii, done as part of a geological survey by the US Department of the Interior back in 1981. For some reason, the library archives didn't want it anymore...
