Opal Dawn Earrings
Opal Design earrings, made from aluminium, based on a photo of a real Lightning Ridge Black Opal.
They have a striking coloured border representing the sky through the colours of dawn and a scattering of stars gently picked out. Available in Blue, Orange or Green. The design was inspired by the quote "The Night is Darkest Just Before Dawn". Seems many of us feel that way right now.
The underlying brushed aluminium glints through the wash of colour. . The gently domed body catches the light from most angles.
Very lightweight at just 2 grams, despite their statement size (4cm drop), and fitted onto sterling silver ear wire droppers. They are so comfortable to wear. The colour is sealed inside the surface by anodising, which makes it resistant to scratches, water, coffee, and even a squirt of bleach. The item comes beautifully packaged, ready for gifting.
I craft all pieces by hand in my studio, being classically trained at Birmingham School of Jewellery.
