Wood Grain Gold Huggie Hoop Earrings
Striking handcrafted earrings that beautifully capture an abstraction of the natural world.
These huggie earrings hug the ear with a modest 8mm inner hoop and a bold, colourful drop.
The 14mm round drop is made of a glass cabochon placed over a piece of my own artwork. Because of this, they are complementary earrings, their brilliant colours carefully selected to match without being identical: Asymmetrical and yet still the perfect pair. The way the patterns and colours flow and intertwine appear reminiscent of natural gemstones. A closer look and you might see it as a representation of our ancient earth, the deepest oceans, or even the wispy nebulas that surround our tiny world.
At first glance, they are a simple splash of colour, but these unique pieces invite a closer look. Their infinite complexities raise far more questions than they could ever answer.
The metal is surgical stainless steel with real 24k gold plating.
