Aquamarine Turtle Shell Drop Earrings
Large graceful two-part earrings that move gently when worn. The design combines silver and oxidised silver to accentuate the turtle shell inspired pattern.
I made these earrings especially for the Goldsmiths Fair 2020. The earrings remind me of childhood visits to the beach and also of one of my favourite sea creatures – the turtle. I’ve always loved turtles and was lucky to swim with them on my honeymoon in the Caribbean. While the drop pendant is a regular shell-like shape, the stones nestle in the more irregular top piece. The polished Oxidised Silver is a contrast to the blue of the stones.
