The facets on these cornflower blue tanzanite stones highlight the glimmering sparkles inside. Annette Ferdinandsen allows the color of the gemstone to stand out by setting them with delicate prongs and a thorn backing onto her signature 18k yellow gold branch earrings. A true work of art!
earrings total length 1 1/2"
tanzanite drops measure 15mm x 24mm
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.
