Whispy Catkin Earrings

£20.00

Delicate weathered and polished copper earrings with three dangly droplets that hang with free movement.  It's difficult to capture the changing shapes of this design with still photograph, as you move your body and head, they come to life as they sway gently. This rustic metallic style is inspired by spring time tree blossom, when the alder tree is in full bloom with golden catkins.

Description

Inspired by the Chinese poet Wang Wei (699-761) from the poem:

“Walking on willow tree roads by a river dappled with peach blossoms,
I look for spring light, but am everywhere lost.
Birds fly up and scatter floating catkins.
A ponderous wave of flowers sags the branches.”

Variation: Each earring is crafted individually and will vary slightly in appearance from the other.
