Neptune's Coral & Pearl Earrings
Neptune was the powerful God of the Sea in Roman mythology, and these beautiful handmade earrings capture some of his commanding presence with warm golden coral and freshwater pearl and sunny 14k gold fill.
Coral and pearl elements are all naturally unique, and will vary slightly between pieces.
Carrie Marill was born in San Francisco, CA in 1976. As an artist, she draws inspiration from a vast body of research - from folk art quilts and Persian miniatures to propaganda posters and industrial design. Marill is inspired by the tension between ornament and object, intellectual and aesthetic. She approaches each work with a disciplined philosophy of color and form to entice her audience to engage her work on many levels of beauty, concept, and the invitation to lose themselves in art amongst the noise of the contemporary world.
Marill graduated from San Francisco State University in 2002 with a BA in Painting and received an MFA in Painting from Cornell University in 2004. Her artwork has been exhibited throughout the United States in California, New York, Seattle, Miami, Dallas, and Arizona.
