These stunning earrings are, like of all Victoria Walker's work, true miniature sculptures that look as though they belong in a museum collection.
Featuring a smaller version of the tactile ‘sprig’ of Heather Locket, these studs are set with lovely peachy-pink Spinels and beautiful pale green Tourmalines. The Tourmalines hang separately underneath, adding gentle movement to the earrings.
The stud fastening is position right at the top of the 'sprig'.
Materials: 18ct yellow gold, 3mm Spinels, 6mm Tourmalines
ABOUT THE MAKER
Victoria grew up in Cumbria and moved to Cornwall in 2002. After originally studying Fine Art and Illustration she fell in love with jewellery making and graduated with a first BA (Hons) degree in Jewellery & Silversmithing at Truro College in 2009. During the course, she won the Goldsmiths Company Precious Metal Bursary award for her designs.
She specialises in kinetic, fine jewellery inspired by the beauty of natural forms. Her signature botanical lockets feature miniature articulated flowers that gently emerge and unfold from within. These moving designs are inspired by the sentimental nature of lockets and indeed all jewellery, that sometimes the most precious and treasured elements are hidden beneath the surface. Using traditional techniques with silver, 18ct gold and diamonds, every tiny petal is carefully handcrafted and precisely engineered to create these beautiful impressions of the natural world.
Victoria works full time from her workshop in Princes House, a beautiful Georgian mansion house in the heart of Truro, Cornwall.
