Textile & Crystal Moth Earrings - Flowering Cactus
A burst of colour in copper, yarn & precious metal - these are delicately hand knitted, hand crocheted & hand stitched using a mixed media of double-entwined coloured copper wire, luxury hand-dyed yarn and swarovski crystal.
This new design was inspired by the dyer behind the hand-dyed yarn in this piece, known as 'Mothy and the Squid'. In this collaboration I wanted to create something that spoke to her very unique brand.
The luxury yarn is merino-nylon fingering yarn, encompassing shades of mustard-olive, rose-peach, pale-yellow, greens and fuchsia.
The earrings have been hand knitted in entwined enamelled copper in pink and champagne-gold, and adorned with matching fuchsia, olivine & rose-peach swarovski crystals.
They are edged in the hand dyed merino yarn in colourway 'Flowering Cactus'.
They have a curvature to them, and are shaped to resemble dancing moths to a flame.
All the processes have gone into making this unique pair.
The earrings are then finished off with 14ct gold-filled hooks.
The earrings measure 3.5 cm across it's widest part, and 4 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.
