The earring is inspired by the delicate veins running through real leaves.
The leaf measures 3.5cm x 4cm, high polished and slightly domed to give this a three-dimensional look, dangling and catching the light on a continental ear fitting.
I use the highest quality and most popular alloy 925 Sterling Silver sourced responsibly, fair trade or recycled.
I created the silver leaf collection using the technique called casting. This is the process by which a wax pattern is made into a jewellery mould and then filled with silver grains to create a custom piece of jewellery. It is also called lost wax casting because the wax is always “lost” during the process of making jewellery.
Store your silver jewellery in an airtight box wrapped in tissue paper when not wearing it. Remove your jewellery if you are going to a swimming pool as chemicals will blacken silver. Use a silver polishing cloth or eco-cleaning method to retain or bring back the shine.
The earring is inspired by curiosity and delving into what happens inside the leaf, the life force, and the fascinating delicate veins running through real leaves.
