I made these earrings with some beautiful vintage glass cabochons that were made in Japan. They are jet black with a pretty faux marcasite insert in the shape of a star and crescent moon. I have mounted them on silver plated filigree bases which were stamped out using antique equipment and patterns.
These earrings are:
- ethically and sustainably made
- limited edition
- made with vintage Japanese glass stones circa 1960s, new silver plated filigrees made in the USA
- 4 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 minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
