Coral

I've been thinking about coral, and the beautiful shapes it makes.  I realised that the other day, when the memory popped into my head about the art deco tiles at school, it was because I'd been looking at pictures of coral the day before, and thinking about how to translate the shapes into jewellery...  

These are some of the shapes I've found really beautiful.






 After making the copper earrings yesterday, I wanted to make a pair in silver, using just one piece of silver for each earring and making them smaller, with more coral-y curves!

Here they are... 













They have beautiful, deep red, fresh water pearls to complete the "underwater" theme!
