My inspiration for these drop earrings came from wallpaper I saw when visiting Brighton Pavilion. They are beautifully drawn with a feeling of vitality which I find magical.
To create these recycled perspex long drops, I have used Madder leaves and tiny hydrangea flowers. My technique starts with a series of separate dye processes. I apply the colours and emboss the surface relief directly from the plants onto my cuffs, earrings and necklaces, so each piece is slightly different from all others. I find working with plants is good for wellbeing. I want to share with the wearer appreciation of the beauty of nature
These green and amber earrings measure 65mm x 12mm x 5mm deep and the total drop is 90mm.
The earwires are made from Argentium Hypoallergenic Silver and Sterling Silver.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
