PEAR DROPS - Corn
Textile & Crystal Peardrop Earrings - Corn
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 nostalgic colours of peardrop sweets I used to get by the ounce as a child from my local 'sweet-shop'. The pinks and yellows melting into each other, begging to be released from their glass jars.
The luxury yarn used for this design is merino-nylon fingering yarn, hand-dyed by Jess of Olann who is based in Ireland.
This yarn encompasses shades of peach, orange, mustard, yellow, fuchsia and specks of olive.
The outer textile drops are hand crocheted and embellished with matching swarovski crystals, and the inner trumpet-shaped flowers are hand knitted and hand-stitched with double entwined copper wires in gold, accented with swarovski crystals in pale-khaki, camel & peach.
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.
