Gatsby Blues Earrings
These one-of-a-kind earrings feature beautiful natural Lapis Lazuli Gemstones. The stones have been bezel set (wrapped in silver) and framed in geometric textured stamping to compliment the stone. I have also added some handing hand forged triangular designs that swing separately. With an oxidised background (blackened) the vibrance of these stones shows to their full advantage. It is difficult to capture the exact colour as these stones change depending on the natural light, but these are a deep blue with golden inclusions throughout the stones. 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.
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 45mm in length and the width 15mm (at its widest point). The gauge (thickness) of the silver is 1.2mm – making these lightweight, but durable.
Lapis lazuli or lapis for short, is a deep-blue metamorphic rock used as a semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense colour. This lapis was mined at the ancient deposits of Afghanistan. Found in limestone in the Kokcha River valley of Badakhshan province in north-eastern Afghanistan, where the Sar-e-Sang mine deposits have been worked for more than 6,000 years.
