These earrings have been made using some unusual green vintage pear shaped rhinestones incised with a star shape. These unfoiled rhinestones were sourced from old warehouse stock and I have mounted them in silver plated open back settings.
I have suspended them from a lovely floral filigree made using antique jewellery making equipment and patterns.
These earrings are:
- ethically and sustainably made
- one of a kind
- made with vintage pear shaped rhinestones made circa 1960s, new silver toned filigrees made in the USA
- 4.3 cm in length
- Suspended on sterling silver hooks
These earrings have been made in my Melbourne workshop with materials which hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
