ANGEL DROPS - Grapevine
Textile & Crystal Teardrop Earrings - Grapevine
A burst of colour in copper & yarn - these are delicately hand crocheted, hand knitted & hand stitched using a mixed media of double-entwined coloured copper wire, luxury hand-dyed yarn and swarovski crystal.
The inspiration for this particular design comes from the delicate angel trumpet flowers that bloom all summer long in warmer climes. The inner piece resembles the flowers that burst open when in full bloom.
The luxury yarn used for this design is merino singles, hand-dyed by Petra of Black Elephant Yarns who is based in Sheffield, UK.
This pure merino yarn encompasses shades of smoky-khaki, lime, yellow, fuchsia, purple & burnt orange, reminding me of cascading mature vines of colourful grapes in summer vineyards.
A real horticultural inspired summer piece!
The outer textile drops are hand crocheted, and the inner trumpet-shaped flowers are hand knitted and hand-stitched with double entwined copper wires in shades of matt-fuchsia & champagne-gold, and accented with swarovski crystals in olive, fuchsia & amethyst.
The earrings are then finished off with 14ct gold-filled hooks.
The earrings measure 3.5 cm across it's widest part, and 5.5 cm 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. 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, so they are made in small quantities, and would therefore be limited in number.
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.
