Earrings rosequarz and drops
These earrings are unique in the Merian’s Treasure collection. In her drawings, Maria Sybilla Merian shows very detailed shapes, textures and colours. The drops made out of rose quartz are held by yellow gold, like fruits growing from a chalice. The morning dew leaves little droplets on the surface.
First I worked out the design in wax, then it was cast in yellow gold. Then I detailed and finished it and put the gemstones in place.

The price of gold fluctuates constantly so the retail price of my jewellery may vary. Please contact me for a current estimate.
These earrings can also be made by commission. The final design will differ slightly. For example, different gemstones can be chosen. This means your commissioned pieces will still be unique. Do you have old gold jewellery that is unused? The gold may be repurposed into making these earrings. That way you not only preserve the material, but also the memories attached to them. Creation and delivery, in this case, would take 4 weeks.
