Silver Fritillaria Flower Long Earrings

£58.00

The distinctive stem of this unusual sterling silver fritillaria flower forms the ear wire, which passes through the lobe and is visible hanging down behind the ear.

Inspired by the beautiful Snake’s Head fritillaria, which hangs down and gently bobs in the breeze.

The surface of these earrings is finished with a subtle brushed texture which glints as they gently swing.

The earrings measure approximately 4.8cm in height, the flower head measures approximately 2.4cm across.

By designer: Gabriella Casemore

Gabriella Casemore’s jewellery is inspired by her fascination with the repetitive patterns found in flowers. She is also very influenced by vintage textiles and her current range was inspired by the Kimono collection at the V&A.

Starting with sheet silver she uses traditional jewellery-making techniques of soldering and riveting along with bending and folding to create sometimes complicated three dimensional pieces, along with more subtle delicate pieces.

The surface of the silver is then textured with various materials such as steel wire or put through a rolling mill with textured paper to give different reflective qualities, sometimes highlighted by polished edges.

Gabriella graduated from Brighton University in 1992, where she studied metals and ceramics. She taught in the Adult Education Department of Brighton’s City College for four years, and is now making jewellery full time from her workshop at Brass Monkeys in Hove.
