My new collection is inspired by a chapter from one of my favourite books by Neil Gaiman, “The Graveyard Book”.
There’s a particular chapter called Danse Macabre that describes a scene in which the spirits are leaving their graveyard to dance with the living. It represents the struggle to leave the people you love, the sorrow of being left behind, all that which is unfinished and the magical chance to meet again. Through dance, we pass through sorrow and grief, in search of what is needed to move on in life, or into the great beyond.
These asymmetric earrings represent the spirits coming forth to play their musical instruments, dance with the living and return once the crow sings its song at sunrise. There are many religious icons present in artworks depicting the Danse Macabre which is why I have added the tiny crosses. Each piece of the earring is articulated and moves freely so there is lots of sparkle and shine off these danglers! Set with faceted garnets that have a display of natural inclusions and imperfections complimenting the rustic theme of the collection.
Made from sterling silver, the earrings measure 50mm long, are very lightweight and comfy to wear.
