Daisy Buchanan Earrings
These one-of-a-kind earrings feature beautiful tiny Lightning Ridge Opals. These teardrop stones have been bezel set (wrapped in silver) and framed in geometric textured stamping to compliment the stone. With an oxidised background (blackened) the vibrance of these stones shows to their full advantage. It is difficult to capture the exact colour of opals, they change depending on the natural light, and have iridescent colour. These are subtle stones but they have flecks of red, greens and golds in the opals. The design was inspired by my enduring love of elegant Art Deco’s sleek geometric forms combined with some Art Nouveau long sinuous organic lines all combined with a little romance. Named for Gatsby’s great love, I think these earrings would have been very much at home in that era.
Hand sawn, individually stamped, cut, drilled and polished, these silver hanging works are classic and edgy. Created entirely from Reclaimed and Recycled Sterling Silver and slow crafted with much care. Each earring is hand-cut with a tiny sawblade and each pattern hand stamped and soldered together, therefore slightly unique and never perfectly matched. The gemstones are sister stones – no two ever exactly the same.
The ear hooks are also hand-fabricated from sterling silver.
The actual earring section measures approximately 30mm in length and the width 20mm (at its widest point). The gauge (thickness) of the silver is 1.2mm – making these lightweight, but durable.
Made with lots of love, heart and soul.
