In Stock. Hydrangea Earrings. Beautiful one-of-a-kind handmade 21K gold dangle drop earrings with bezel set green garnets, amethysts, and blue diamonds. These earrings are an abstract interpretation of the flowering hydrangea. Feminine and elegant, these will surely start a conversation.
The inspiration for these earrings comes from abstract traditions of Modernism and ancient techniques of manual jewelry making, such as granulation, fusing, and metal forming. These techniques were introduced by pre-Classical Sumerian, Mycenaean and Minoan cultures and built upon during Greek Classical and Hellenistic periods when naturalistic forms were introduced. My designs are influenced by the skill and the laborious attention to detail paid by the artisans throughout thousands of years of jewelry design.
While inspired by history and nature, these earrings are created for a modern woman.
***I always start out with pure 24k gold. By mixing it with fine silver and copper, I melt it down to 21K concentration. 21K gold is more durable than 22K but does not take away from a luscious 22K color.
