Dog Star Enamel Earrings by Mark Poulin
This pup is wishing on his lucky star. Check out this cute black and red dog drawing on white!
These earrings are made from enameled sterling silver and hung from sterling silver ear wires. They measure approximately 0.75" long. They are both modern and retro and are inspired by the style of vintage storybooks.
Each piece is cast in sterling silver, to which 3 layers of vitreous enamel are applied and fired. Finally, Mark applies and fires the custom screen prints made from his drawings. Adorable, durable, and unique!
Handmade by Mark Poulin of Oakland, California.
Give me a pencil to sketch with, a piece of wax to crave, some metal to shape, and I’m a happy camper.
I learned to make jewelry by taking classes at the local rec center here in Oakland, California... and also through lots of trial and error and trips to the library.
Making jewelry excites me and I love watching the transformation of an idea to a drawing to a finished object. The process never ceases to amaze and challenge me.
I am inspired by pop culture, high art, low art, and the vocabulary of minimalism.
