Oak Leaf Earrings available in either Silver, Brass or Oxidised Copper.
Taking the smallest size of leaf in the collection, these oak leaf earrings are dainty and light.
They are individually hand cut from recycled sheet metal with a fine jewellers saw. I then polish them to a smooth finish before being doming and curving the metal.
Each pair of leaves mirror each other in shape beautifully.
I handcraft the earwires from EcoSilver wire and use a high heat to ball one end of the wire. This feature holds the oak leaf in place, allowing it to move and dangle freely.
A percentage of each sale from this collection goes towards supporting a long-term participatory artwork by the artist Colin Andrews. The artwork in question is entitled akin – click on the tab above for more information.
