Birch Leaves - By Små Blå

Meaurements: Drop 8 cm Circles outer diameter about 1.7mm
Materials: Sterling silver wire, green Tourmaline faceted briolettes
Description: “… I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree~ And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more, But dipped its top and set me down again. That would be good both going and coming back. One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.” Birches by Robert Frost
Once again Robert Frost proved to be a source of inspiration and once again leaves play the dominant part in these earrings, full of texture and movement. The leaves are all handmade from scratch in sterling silver wire and then wrapped to a simple textured sterling silver chain. The chains hang from double wrapped circles and here and there gorgeous green Tourmaline briolettes pop out. The earrings are quite heavily oxidised and the green gemstones give a soft hint of sparkle and colour among the leaves.
