Opal Star Earrings
Opal Star earrings, made from aluminium.
The Opal Design is based on a photo of a real Lightning Ridge Black Opal. It is set within a Star motif, representing the sky through the early light of dawn and a scattering of stars gently picked out. The design was inspired by the quote "The Night is Darkest Just Before Dawn".
The underlying brushed aluminium glints through the wash of colour. The gently domed body catches the light from most angles.
Available in 4cm and 6cm drop-length
Very lightweight at just 1-2 gram, despite their statement size, 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.
