HEXAHOOPS - Paved with Gold
MIXED-MEDIA HEXAGONAL HOOP EARRINGS
Paved with Gold
These earrings have been delicately hand crocheted, and hand stitched using a mixed media of gilt-plated copper jewellery wires, 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 distinct colourway, 'Grounded'.
Her soft grey yarn, interspersed with flecks of golden honey & sunshine yellow, brings to mind the old story of Dick Whittington and his Cat, in which the streets of London were described as being "paved with gold".
The outer hexagon is hand crocheted with the luxury merino singles yarn, and the centre is crocheted with double entwined gilt-enamelled copper and embellished with matching swarovski crystals in black diamond. They are finished with gold-filled ear hooks.
The earrings measure 4cm across and 5cm from top of hook to bottom of earring.
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.
These pieces are made with specialist hand-dyed yarn which will not always be available.
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.
