Lovely & lightweight, elegant & glamorous, these beautiful stone-look earrings will swing on their long sterling silver as you move, showing off their individual colourings. These are unique, handmade earrings – every single one I make is different! This miss matched pair of “pebbles” complement one another as they share various shades of greys, blues & reds, with a green stripe around the side and a central green detail on the front.
And these would make any wife or girlfriend happy as a special gift on a first wedding anniversary! Paper is the theme of this anniversary – and I’ve actually recycled old newspapers to create this beautiful jewellery. So it’s an eco-friendly gift as well as a romantic one!
I start by glueing sheets of a few sheets of newspaper together, continuing until I have a hard block of paper at the thickness I need. Once the block is bone dry, I work into it with my crafting knives and sanders. This shapes the piece and also reveals the individual colourful inks printed on the paper, which further make each piece of jewellery unique. Next I varnish each piece to both strengthen the paper and highlight the colours. Finally I drill through the pebbles & insert an eye pin which allow them to hang from a fine silver chain, hoop and earring posts.
• The full drop (chain plus pebble) is approx. 7.5cm
