Dandelion Clock

Named for the glorious dandelion clocks that my kids and I like to play with, here in the Southern Hemisphere Spring.

Stunning concave AAA gem quality rock crystal quartz briolettes are the dazzling focals in these stunning earrings. You can see how they are faceted on both sides (see pic 4) for remarkable clarity and sparkle! These have been painstakingly wirewrapped, and swing from curved and hammered frames, along with citrine rondelles and lustrous white keishi pearls. Coordinating citrine rondelles link this component to ornate curliques of wire, also hammered. Sweeping handforged ear wires complete the design, which has been deeply oxidised and then rubbed back selectively.

Today feels like these earrings - gloriously mild and Spring-y. You might just catch me sipping a glass of rose out on the verandah soon.
