The Largo Hoops

Artist Statement: Suspended from my handforged, elongated, slender U hoops are a trio of rich coloured gems comprising of faceted rondelles of Amethyst and Peacock Apatite and a microfaceted Vesuvianite marquise briolette. The silver has been oxidised and brushed to create a rustic finish.

These earrings have a total drop of 4.8cm from the top of the hoop. The hoops measure 3.7x1.5cm. The vesuvianite briolette measures 9mm in length. All metals used are sterling and fine silver.
