'Jewel' drop and tin-scruff earrings
Earrings featuring mineral and metal layers suspended in a miniature version of the undulating and scarred mining landscape which inspired them; the beautiful Devon-Cornwall borderlands of the Tamar Valley. Grains of pure tin, iron, copper and mica (the geologic materials of this landscape), combine with chalk in a handmade resin composition. No two jewels are the same, each one being hand cut and finished in much the same way as a true earth gemstone is processed. You can see each jewel's shimmering, smokey interior, a trapped moment in time.
On elegant handmade silver earwire hooks, the 'jewels' are topped off with 'TinScruff' fragments inspired by the encrusted remains of the roasting ovens which dot the landscape. Pure tin is a soft, non-toxic, gleaming metal, these earrings weigh in at just 4g each. There IS ONLY ONE of this design available to purchase.
Postage is included in the price.
