BOLLYWOOD HOOPS - Tropical Ocean
Textile & Crystal Hoop Earrings - Tropical Ocean
A burst of colour in copper & yarn - these are delicately hand crocheted and hand stitched using a mixed media of double-entwined coloured copper wire, luxury hand-dyed yarn and swarovski crystal.
The luxury yarn used for this design is a mix of Bluefaced Leicester wool & nylon, which is very soft & non-itchy. It's hand-dyed by one of my favourite dyers, Countess Ablaze, who is based in Manchester, UK.
Known for her vibrant, rich and unusual use of colour, this Lady Persephone sock yarn encompasses shades of deep lapis-blue, turquoise, emerald green & burnt/bright orange, reminded me of the jewels of the ocean, with it's tropical plant & fish-life. The colourway is aptly named 'Big Fish in a Little Pond', a popular repeatable colour of hers.
The outer circular textile hoops are accented with matching swarovski crystals in blues, greens and burnt-orange. The inner earring section is hand crocheted with double entwined copper wire in shades of matt-turquoise & blue, and framed with similar colour crystals to the outer circle.
The earrings are then finished off with oxidised sterling silver hooks.
The earrings measure 5cm across it's widest part, and 7cm 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 quantites, 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.
