Icarus Sun Drop Earrings in Gold Vermeil


Inspired by the tragic Greek myth of Icarus, Cara has based this elegant jewellery collection on layered, feather shapes.

The Icarus Sun Drop Earrings are made in textured sterling silver and finished in gold vermeil (a thick layer of gold plate). The drops are articulated allowing for beautiful movement and shimmer in the light.

They measure 13 mm wide by 30 mm in length, with a post and scroll fitting; a perfect statement earring that isn’t too long.

The daughter of two artists, Cara grew up surrounded by creativity both at home and in the inspiring city of Brighton.
