These one of a kind earrings feature the sweet hedgerow flower Herb Robert (a member of the geranium family) captured in Sterling silver clay and complimented by lilac Amethyst and Super Seven crystals. The intricate details of the leaf are picked up with a delicate dark grey patina that contrasts beautifully with the shine of the gemstones.
Super Seven is an incredibly beautiful and interesting gemstone that is actually a combination of seven minerals: Amethyst, Cacoxenite, Goethite, Lepidocrocite, Rutile, Clear Quartz and Smoky Quartz. With it's hazy lilac and pink hues off set with lots of dark brown speckles, it always reminds me of Foxglove petals.
These earrings have a rustic matte finish, with hammered details and graduated patina. To preserve the patina please make sure to take them off before swimming and showering.
This piece is entirely hand formed, filed and polished from sheet, wire and stone with time and care in my home studio in West Cork, Ireland.
The earrings and ear wires are entirely made of Sterling silver.
