Thirlmere is such a beautiful part of the Lake District, a glittering body of water surrounded by majestic woodlands and overlooked by the towering Raven Crag. I once hiked around there in mid December and the skies as the sun went down turned the most beautiful violet purple hues so I wanted to capture it in a piece of jewellery.

To make these earrings I took pebbles of sterling silver which I hammered into flat organic shapes. I then added some birds in flight to reoresent the ravens of Raven Crag. When it came to finding a gemstone to symbolise the incredible sky there really was no other I had in my mind than some mindblowing purple labradorite that I had managed to get hold of. Labradorite was believed by the ancient Norse people to hold within it the Northern Lights themselves and it's not hard to see why. The gemstone displays a phenomenom called Labradorescence which allows it to display flashes of multiple colours in different lights and angles. Also known as 'schiller' this effect is particularly stunning in this purple variety with its flashes of deep blue, gold and green. They are finished with Sterling Silver Leverback wires. 

These are mesmerising earrings which will be loved by anyone who appreciates the beauty of nature. They're subtle enough to be worn casually yet bold enough to compliment formal wear. An absolutely stunning gift for yourself or someone special.

I consciously make pieces that I believe can be worn by all gender identities.
