Sterling silver, freshwater pearls, 18K gold, Stingray leather, enamel on copper
These modern earrings are constructed with Sterling silver, 18K gold accents, enamel on copper, and freshwater pearls. I love to combine natural materials with precious metal and most of my jewellery incorporates natural elements. These earrings are made with durable materials. No special care is required, other than to avoid contact with perfume sprays, harsh chemicals, and detergents. All materials are purchased from ethical sources, and the silver is recycled.
