Key Largo Earrings
9ct yellow gold, peridot and resin leaf earrings
You can’t get more fabulously tropical than these monstera leaf earrings. Hand-crafted from solid gold and hand-cast resin, their deep emerald, gold and citrus green tones evoke the hot, humid and steamy landscape of coastal Florida, specifically Key Largo, after which they take their name.
Mixing hi-lo materials – in this case gemstones and gold with resin – is something that Tessa loves exploring in her fine jewellery. For her, jewellery should be judged on colour, form and design first and foremost, with material value a definite second. The design possibilities of mixing and matching old jewellery materials with new ones is a process that never fails to delight, and has led to many celebrated inventive and statement pieces, such as this one.
The Key Largo Earrings form part of Tessa’s Plastic Fantastic collection, which explores the use of up-cycled plastic in fine jewellery. To see the full collection please click HERE.
