HEXADROP EARRINGS - Aubergine
Textile & Crystal Drop Earrings - 'Aubergine'
Picture golden roasted aubergine, with it's dark purple skin and golden flesh in these delicately hand crocheted and hand stitched hexadrop earrings, using a mixed media of luxury hand-dyed yarn, swarovski crystal and precious metal.
The luxury yarn used for this design is 85% SW Falklands Poldale/15% black nylon, which is smooth and non-itchy.
It's hand-dyed by indie dyer Lola of Third Vault Yarns, in her colourway 'Twisted Sisters - Plum' which she produced specially for Unravel 2019.
Her rich blend of mustard, dark-purple, turquoise and lilac brings to mind a colourful mediterranean dish of golden roasted aubergines.
These smaller hexagonal earrings are hand crocheted with yarn, and matched with amethyst swarovski pendant crystals. How the yarn colours fall within the piece varies depending on which part of the yarn I start crocheting with. So no two pairs are ever the same.
I will always try to mirror the earrings so that the colours are as symmetrical and balanced as possible.
The earrings are then finished off with gold-filled (gold-plated sterling silver) or rose-gold filled hooks, depending on the shade of yarn that dominates the pair.
These petite earrings measure 2cm across it's widest part, and just over 3cm from the top of hook to bottom of earring.
The jewellery will come packaged in a beautiful customised silver jewellery box, perfect if buying as a gift.
