Two posts in two days! I am running like a well oiled machine right now. All joking aside and down to business before I waffle on about this, that, and the other Sue has designed another beautiful pair of unique Handmade Silver Hoop and Gemstone Cluster Earrings. The first thing Sue made was the frame which is all in one and hand forged from sterling silver wire. The next step was to wrap fine silver wire around the frame in a random squiggle pattern with the balled up ends twisted together. Sue then came up with a lovely colour combination by using Pink Mystic Topaz, Tanzanite, Rainbow Moonstone, Rose Quartz and an Amethyst drop to give a subtle but very effective look. This is one of the hardest parts of designing gemstone jewellery as it can all go wrong if you don’t get the right colours which it has done for me on a few occasions! I told her she should call them sweetie earrings as they have the same colours as a packet of Love Heart sweets. The design is a variation of our popular Squiggle Earrings but with a splash of colour added and Sue is currently in the process of designing a matching necklace so this will make a fantastic set. This pair of earrings are fantastically sparkly for those of you who like a bit of sparkle in your lives.

Sue loves to make wire wrapped jewellery and she has made another beautiful pair of Silver Wire Wrapped Earrings. The frame is all in one piece which she has hand forged into a pear shape to compliment the gemstone shape. She then tirelessly and carefully wrapped metres of silver wire around the frame and put her unique signature of coils spiralling up the stem of the ear wire. The frame was then oxidised then given a little light polish to brighten it up. The AAA Pink Mystic Quartz stone was then attached in the centre of the frame and sterling silver balls wrapped around the inside of the frame to enhance the design by having a contrast between oxidised and bright silver. Overall these earrings are stunning and are a great look for the summer as the Pink Mystic Quartz are absolutely sparkling.
