Nasturtium Ethiopian Opal Statement Dangle Earrings
Nasturtium flowers are created to be anatomically accurate, but what is the flower without the beautiful leaves? Together, this pair of earrings includes six textured and veined leaves and two flowers, all fully hand-fabricated. At the top are the largest Ethiopian opals that I've used to-date. They're huge! They have a lovely flash, which has shades of pink, green, orange and yellow, predominantly, with blues underlying. These are large, statement earrings. Depending on the light, they flash differently but they flash well in all lighting.
Art Nouveau representations of nasturtium focus on the flow of the stems. Each element has been thought through to give the design a feeling of flow. The collection has few pieces for good reason, each piece in the collection took over a day to create, some even took over a week's worth of working hours. But it is the time and care taken that makes each and every piece unique and beautiful.
These earrings are approximately 3.75" in length and are a medium weight. In fact, they could be considered medium/light, if you are used to wearing statement earrings.
Note: If you are rough on your jewelry, you will want to treat this with gentle care. While sturdy, elements should never been twisted, torqued, bent, or pulled/yanked.
All of my work, unless otherwise specified brass or copper (will also be visibly obvious), is 0.925 sterling silver.
Please review shipping and return policies prior to purchase (see link at the top of the page).
US Domestic shipping prices on purchases over $100 include USPS shipping and insurance. International buyers who wish for insured postage are welcome to ask and I can obtain pricing through UPS; you would pay the additional charges. UPS across waters (i.e. not in Canada) are quite high with insurance, but I understand shipping during covid has made many of us nervous.
