A while back, at my studio sale to be precise, a client’s sister called me to see if I would be able to to something with her earrings. She had just bought some earrings and unfortunately one had fallen out of her ear without her realising. By the time she did, she went back out onto the street where she had parked her car and discovered that her earring had been run over.
I unfortunately could not resurrect the earring and came up with a new design concept for the pair. This was to melt them down and either make studs or drops of them with some form of Amethyst attached to add colour.
Luckily I found the perfect pair of hand carved Amethysts in India and the design was complete!
