Seekers Who Are Lovers

Brush by gracefully
A love as big as a risk
Fills you up
And you can't look on.

Named for the otherworldly Cocteau Twins song - I listen to them often when creating. Evocative of the romance and wistfulness of the song, they also feature a darker - almost gothic - edge.

Stunning AAA grade rose quartz discs - faceted to a point on both sides for extraordinary sparkle - are the beautiful focals in this design. Carefully secured to shaped, hammered and wirewrapped frames, these have been enhanced with delicate marquis cut AAA grade white topaz briolettes - these shimmer so temptingly! Tiny A grade blue sapphires finish the design. Modern ear wires were added to the chandelier style earrings. To take an edge off the frou frou, an oxidised patina was applied and then rubbed back - this reveals the detailed wire work to perfection.

You can see more photos of these earrings here.
