The Electra Earring is named after the Oceanid daughter of Oceanus and Tethys. I love the word 'Oceanid' but it doesn't quite role off the tongue quite in the same way that Electra does! The Oceanids were nymphs and harpies - The perfect personailty for earrings designed to be worn by a modern day siren.
To create the detail and texture in these earrings I used a mix of metal and red wax. Pressing my thumb print in to the wax and then melting it over pre-formed metal emblams. Finally, cast in brass using the traditional lost wax method.
Designed to be worn as part of the ever growing Good Intentions collection, which can be mixed and matched to create endless combinations. This style is sold as a single earring. For a matching pair please order 2 quantity.
