These earrings are a follow up from a previous commission to re-purpose some old gold rings into a new wedding band. The gold was melted down and formed into 2mm square wire with plenty to make a wedding ring and have some leftover for a future project.
So it brought a smile to my face to hear from Hannah again about using the rest of her gold for her mum’s birthday this summer! I was told her mum loved green which couldn’t be more perfect as the combination of yellow gold and green gemstones is stunning.
I presented Hannah with a few options for earring designs and then once a final design had been decided on I made a quick mock up in silver, just to be sure that there was enough gold to make the earrings as designed. There was, and here they are!
I loved the size of the circles – chunky but still small enough for everyday wear – so much that they have inspired a few new pieces!
