Dandelion Lichen earrings - Silver, enamel & copper Palimpsest Collection
I am captivated by lichens, the sheer variety, subtlety of colours and patterns with their slow growing habits, some of less than a milimetre a year. Gravestones are often home to tiny lichen worlds, living largely undisturbed in these quiet places. Colonies abide on London Plane trees, the wind dislodges them, an annual shedding of bark, so they fly like tiny magic carpets, I am often found picking up these colourful samples to inspire me. Dandelion seed heads are so fragile and beautiful and often found in similar places, awaiting their wind dispersal too.
These enamelled drop earrings are inspired by both dandelions and lichens and are made from translucent white enamel with speckles of green and gold. The A one of a kind unique pair, a special gift for your ears!
