From my Seed Embracers collection, these solid 9ct yellow gold and natural sapphire earrings are inspired by macrocarpa cones. I’ve been enjoying exploring shapes and the positive and negative spaces left behind.
All handmade by me. I started with solid 9ct yellow gold, hand pierced (sawed) out the shapes, domed them, then drilled and burred out the holes for the sapphires. Carefully pushed the gold over by hand to lock in the gems. Finally, to add depth and texture, I filed and burred the shapes of the seedpod.
Each earring measures 11mm diameter and has a 9ct yellow gold stud and silicone coated 10ct yellow gold butterfly. The silicon coating makes the butterfly more comfortable and more secure, making these studs perfect for everyday wear.
Enjoy a rare piece of jewellery that is crafted individually by hand and lovingly made with skill and passion. (no mass production or casting.)
