These ‘Edge’ Earrings are handmade from Eco silver, Titanium and 9ct gold and are from Corrinne's ‘Ravens Tail' collection.
The hand formed chainmail makes a fluid design that hangs and moves beautifully with the wearer.
The ‘Ravens Tail' collection is influenced by the First Nations' weavings, in particular the ‘Ravens Tail’ weave, a special technique used for blankets. The blankets are worn for ceremonial occasions and woven using natural fibres of the landscape, taking many months to complete.
The Raven is also a key spiritual creature within First Nations, being depicted on totem poles and in myths - a symbolic creature of good and evil, a powerful trickster within their mythology who enables the explanation of ‘how daylight began’ or ‘why summer and winter alternate’.
Titanium is a light and hard wearing metal, soft to the touch and in a striking matt gun metal grey colour. The Titanium never discolours or changes so the patten will always stay within the piece.
Beautifully boxed and gift wrapped, these earrings are approx. 2.5cm in length x 1cm wide.
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.
