Berry Garnet Cluster Earrings
Organic textured loops of 18ct yellow gold have been adorned with clusters of juicy red and pink garnet chips and faceted beads, all with fine golden wires. The beads shimmer in their clusters, and look like shining berries and pomegranate seeds. Worn with a ear post at the top of the loop and fastened with gold ear scrolls.
As the birthstone for January, garnet is said to bring love, luck, health, loyalty and friendship to people who are born this month. It is also the gem that married people traditionally gift on their 2nd and 18th wedding anniversary.
Disa Allsopp is fascinated by ancient civilisations that worked in metal like the Egyptians and Etruscans. She uses hand hammering, forging and reticulation techniques in 18ct gold and silver to give a luxurious textured finish with a sense of history. Metal is left in it’s natural state, often rugged and patinated for an earthy finish. By incorporating gleaming jewels in rich colours she adds to the treasure-like quality, as if discovering an ancient hoard.
Born in London, Disa grew up in Barbados and studied at Middlesex University with a Postgraduate in Jewellery at Edinburgh College of Art & Design. Disa originally set up a workshop in Barbados and then returned to London in 1996 where she currently designs and makes all her jewellery.
