Bronze Basalt Hoops
These bronze hoop earrings neatly curl under the ear with a 9ct yellow gold stud and scroll fastening. Their rocky texture is inspired by basalt columns. They are hand carved to give a chunky look, without being heavy so they’re perfect for everyday.
Hoop diameter measures approx 1.7mm across. Rock texture is 7-8mm wide.
From the buried treasures of Pompeii to jewels found in meteorites and asteroids falling to earth over millennia; Jade Mellor wants to evoke the feeling of uncovering gems that have practically become part of the landscape through the wearing of time, but originate from another world or civilisation.
The techniques she continues to develop push this medium and her further research into natural history, ancient civilisation and passion for nature's jewels result in exciting colours and textures in processes inspired by fossilisation and mineral structures.
