These oxidised sterling silver and patina earrings have a lovely sparkle of rosecut amethyst, and a nostalgic, wistful feel to them.

Made by Caroline Bassett, she says of her Image Range:" my work is created in enjoyment for photography, pattern and nostalgia. Like little pockets of a memory, which may give a glimpse of a time wished for, or a time almost forgotten."

Earrings measure approx 4.5cm from top of ear wire.

At Lobo Luxe we feel strongly about providing earrings that have not been worn by anyone else, so even our models don't wear them! You will see the model holding the earring against her ear on a perspex holder, it should give you a feel for the design and shape and how it will look when you make them your own : )

Handcrafted in New Zealand.

Caroline Bassett

Jewellery is always a fervent character in my life, and is seen is an extension of the body and mind. My specialty is fabrication and surface manipulation. The enjoyment of the problematic is a strong aspect of my jewellery construction and practice. I love to solve.

Most work is created in enjoyment for memory, thought and visual hedonism. It is these three things that govern my works using photography and illustration as the vehicle to enliven the audience and hopefully awaken a special connection. My style has been called hard-edged, political and at best anthropological.

I live, work and play in Wellington, New Zealand, graduating from Whitireia Polytechnic in 2004 and practicing my craft ever since.
