Leaf Drop Earrings
Vividly coloured leaf-design earrings made onto elegantly curved aluminium, and overlaid with a sterling silver cutout to provide form and relief. The underlying brushed aluminium and sterling silver glint, the curved body catching the sun from most angles. The silver cutout is riveted to the aluminium rather than dangling separately.
Available in two colourways - Spring (Green and Blue), and Autumn (Red and Yellow)
The earrings are 3.8cm in length, fitted onto sterling silver ear wire droppers. Surprisingly light despite the size at only 1.5 grams, making them comfortable to wear.
The colour goes into the pores of the alumininium and anodised to fix and hold it inside the surface. I have tested the durability of the finish to ensure that it is scratch resistant, water resistant to an overnight soak, and survives several minutes of bleach.
