The silk for these delicate, summery flowers was dyed with indigo in my fermentation vat. The colour is that of light denim - pale on the inside of the pleats and darker around the edges. They are smocked in green and blue turquoise and have three long stamens decorated with orange glass beads.

Very light for their size, the earrings swing from handmade earwires. All metal is antiqued sterling silver.

Size: the flowers are about 4 cm (1 1/2 inches) wide and with the earwire the earrings are 7.5 cm (nearly 3 inches) long.

As with all textiles, storing the earrings out of direct sunlight is recommended to keep them at their best.
