The inspiration for the shape of these sweet, dangling earrings comes from the Corculum cardissa, a heart shaped cockle shell. But in the process of carving the piece, there appeared an acorn, a bauble, a heart. All hark back to mementos of bygone era.
A 14k yellow ear wire is threaded through the top of the sterling "heart", and moves freely, giving subtle movement to the earrings. The “heart” measures 17mm in diameter.
