Rice Pearl Drop Earrings
My Rice Pearl Drop Earrings feature multiple rice pearl beads in contrasting metals. I love the way the finished beads reflect nature and bring subtle movement to the design.
Dimensions: From top of hoop to tip of drop 50mm
Hoop - h 12mm x w 2mm x d 2mm
Drop - h 40mm x w 10mm x d 2.6mm
When I had my London workshop, I worked with a group of jewellery designers and we all created pieces with pearls for a show at the Barbican. I chose rice pearls and years later I found some left over in a drawer and came up with the idea of casting them in silver. This is one of the pieces that came about from that experiment.
