Elliptical Hoop Earrings
My Elliptical hoops are oval in shape appear larger and more dramatic than a simple circle. The highly detailed beaded wire provides a conspicuous texture which catches the light and gives added sparkle.
Dimensions: l 40mm x w 25mm x d 2.4mm
I made these earrings first as a special commission for a customer. She wanted a pair of hoops to add to her earring collection but said she had a long neck and face and that normal sized hoops did not suit her. So I thought I would be nice to make some longer ones that complimented her features and were more striking than the usual round ones.
The earrings were bought as a Christmas gift and were extremely well received. The unusual oval shape, beaded texture and oxidised silver finish give them a very striking and contemporary feel.
