Smooth, large ovals of turquoise slices make a dramatic statement. The dark green coloring has splotches of black veining that make it feel more terrestrial. Annette Ferdinandsen attaches these bold stones to her signature handcrafted 18k yellow gold branch earrings.
earrings total length 2 1/4"
turquoise drops measure 30mm x 40mm
Working from her upstate New York studio, Annette Ferdinandsen's handcrafted organic creations are influenced by nature, her travels and surroundings. Her father and grandfather were both model makers for renowned Danish sculptors. Ferdinandsen followed her lineage and attended the Rhode Island School of Design studying sculpture. This background in sculpture has influenced how important form is in her work...subtle curves and movements are signatures of her pieces. An interesting side fact, Annette was David and Ron's, the designers behind Ten Thousand Things, first employee over 20 years ago.
