ALHAMBRA HOOPS - Agean Sea
Textile & Crystal Hoop Earrings - Agean Sea
A burst of colour in copper & yarn - these are delicately hand crocheted and hand stitched using a mixed media of double-entwined coloured copper wire, luxury hand-dyed yarn and swarovski crystal.
The luxury yarn used for this design is 100% merino singles which is silky-soft and non-itchy. It's hand-dyed by indie dyer Uschitita who is based in the Netherlands in her exclusive 12/18 club colourway, 'Grinch'.
Her clever blend of green, turquoise & blue tones, brings to mind the beautiful Agean sea, with the lighter green resembling the warm sun glinting off the water.
The outer circular textile hoops are accented with matching swarovski crystals in blues, greens and citrus yellow. The inner earring section is hand crocheted with double entwined copper wire in shades of aqua & leaf-green, and framed with similar colour crystals to the outer circle.
The earrings are then finished off with gold-filled (gold-plated sterling silver) hooks.
The earrings measure 5cm across it's widest part, and 7cm from the top of hook to bottom of hoop.
The wire colour may vary slightly depending on the reel batch, and how the yarn colours fall within the piece may vary depending on which part of the yarn I start crocheting with, but any variation will be very slight.
I will always try to mirror the earrings so that the colours are as symmetrical and balanced as possible.
The yarn will be from the same skein each time, & the swarovski crystals will be identical to the sample image.
These pieces are made with specialist hand-dyed yarn, which may not always be available. This particular colour is a club exclusive and non-repeatable, so will be a limited edition.
They are a made-to-order item, so please allow at least 3 weeks for delivery for UK & Europe, and 6 weeks for USA & Worldwide.
This earrings will come packaged in a beautiful customised silver jewellery box, perfect if buying as a gift.
This item will be shipped by Signed for/Special Delivery.
