This flower gives off the vibe of the tropics but it is soft and delicate. Annette Ferdinandsen handcrafts the Fuchsia plant out of 14k yellow gold and has its leaves spread like an open umbrella with dainty gold tendrils dropping down that have tiny ruby seeds at their end. These hanging earrings are beautiful and feminine.
earrings total length 1 9/16"
ruby and gold drops measure 22mm x 28mm
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.
