Recycled Silver and Green Sea Glass Drop Earrings
Do you love classic drop earrings but want something a bit more modern? If the answers yes, then these gorgeous green sea glass and recycled silver earrings are for you. The smooth bottle green sea glass gems have been individually set in twisted silver wire claws and hung from simple u-shaped ear-wires making them light-weight and easy to wear. Just imagine how famously they would look with a little black dress and an up do! Or, if it's on the cards, I think these would make amazing bridal earrings.
I love working with found objects, especially sea glass. These pieces were collected from the pebble beach in Menton, France. The sea glass has a lovely smooth finish, and no cracks or inclusions, making these pieces look just like tumbled emeralds or sapphires. As well as found objects, I always work with recycled and Fairtrade metals, in this case recycled sterling silver. As a maker I believe it's important to make socially and environmentally responsible choices in how I create my pieces. If you're looking through my work, I imagine that this is important to you too!
