Metal seems fixed, immovable. But with the coaxing of heat through annealing it returns to a malleable state. It can be hit over and over and over again, even twisted, and not break.
Resilience determines the success of a person after experiencing trauma, difficulty, and sometimes failure. Can the person find inner strength and knowledge that giving up isn’t an option? Even once this pandemic is over, every year in each of our lives there will be difficult times. May you always be resilient.
These earrings have been hammered, twisted, forced into an oblong shape- and come out elegantly, beautifully. They were heated enough through annealing to be relieved from internal stress thus able to withstand heavy duty manipulation~ think resilience!
