Silver Ellipse Drop Earrings
These beautiful, one-of-a-kind Silver Ellipse Dot Earrings are part of my First Exploration collection.
First Exploration was originally inspired by a quotation from a book by Carl Sagan called 'Pale Blue Dot'. The book was named after an image of Earth taken by the Voyager 1 space probe from the edge of our Solar System before it crossed into interstellar space. The image of Earth 'as a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam' threw a spotlight onto our precious planet giving humanity a chance to see itself in a whole new light.
I have chosen to make these earrings in the Japanese colours Wakabairo [Young Leaf Green] and Fushiiro [Firewood Brown]. Fushiiro to me very much represents the ever-increasing wildfires we are experiencing, and Wakabairo our hope for the future.
The earrings are handmade in recycled Sterling silver and eco-resin using techniques such as sawing, filing, forming, soldering and casting resin. Once both colours were cured, the resin was carefully sanded back and polished to a glossy finish.
The earrings measure approximately 42x12mm and come with Sterling silver scrolls.
The earrings will be shipped in a grey recycled-card gift box carefully packaged to ensure that they are not damaged in transit.
Ready to ship in 3-5 business days.
From 1 October to 31 December 2023, 5% of every sale from my website will be donated to the environmental charity Cool Earth (www.coolearth.org) via Work for Good (https://workforgood.co.uk).
