“Aeromancy is the practice of divination using clouds and weather patterns. It reminds me of being a small child in springtime, rushing to be the first to claim a swing at grammar school recess, and swinging as high as I could, parallel to the top bar, to reach the glorious clouds swirling in the deep blue sky, dreaming extraordinary stories based on what I was seeing there.
Earrings are fabricated and set with traditional gemstones and enamel gems. Multiple layers of kiln-fired enamel are added. Hand made iron oxide transfers are intuitively gathered from the historical record and fired into the enamel and hand colored with overglaze. Imagery is from two French centuries-old playing/divination cards, one representing the element of air. A layer of under-fired enamel adds texture and a graininess that sets the image outside of time.” -Kim Nogueira
