The inspiration for these cobalt blue sea glass bud drop earrings was my favorite architect Antoni Gaudi. Gaudi always used very botanical structures in his architecture and my aim for these earrings is to look like hanging buds of beautiful sea glass. The sea glass that I use in these earrings has to be a certain rounded shape and size. The sterling silver claw part of the bud allows light in and through the piece of sea glass giving it a luminosity which is captivating.
Like all of my jewelry, these are entirely handmade including the sterling silver ear wires. Each bud setting is custom made based on the actual size of the piece of sea glass being used for each earring. The hanging length for this pair of earrings is 1 3/4 inch or 4.8cm.
This pair of earrings will be tastefully packaged in a gift box and tied with a ribbon.
