Elytra Earrings

About this project

Elytra, my first collection, was conceived during my studies at Manchester Met and remains strong among my designs.  A simple shape based on beetle wings is repeated and assembled with colour graduating through the piece.  Made from aluminium and silver they are lightweight and have fluid movement. Earrings can be reversed simply by threading the hoop through the opposite end of the drop causing the pieces to fall the other way.  Please visit my website to see the colours currently available.
