Velma Beaded Embellished Brass Face Earrings
My vision for the extraordinary and the unusual is very apparent in this collection of quirky, eclectic, playful pieces of one of a kind statements.
At first glance, you will notice the brass facial features with what seems like the earrings cascading freely from the mouths. Titled 'TONGUE-TIED' this pair is a celebratory statement that highlights the beauty in all women who have lost their freedom of speech in a somewhat free-speaking world.
Velma marries together fashion with the freedom to speak out for many who have lost their voice.
For this collection, it is paramount that the pieces respectfully celebrates the journeys the women have undergone, so I have tactfully and intricately incorporated materials which too have experienced a vital mission to finally end up in this powerful, self-expressive piece of wearable art. I have used some vintage recycled textiles sourced from quirky vintage shops on Brick Lane, London, which have been refashioned into baubles, fused with reclaimed pieces of jewellery passed down as heirlooms from family and friends. This unusual combination gives this pair an artsy, global trotting bohemian aesthetic, which is an experience itself.
Cascading from a brass hook fastening the Velma earrings is beautifully rendered from the most exquisite glass beads, gold and brass-plated brass, shells, cotton and silk threads, fuchsia agate gemstone. Repurposed vintage textiles used in the baubles, shells, repurposed vintage embroidered Indian textiles, Moroccan amazonite pottery beads, carved bone dagger beads, vintage buttons, wooden beads, brass face pendants, Swarovski crystals, and brass bell charms.
Pair the Velma earrings with the Mohin necklace over a vibrant floaty dress or tunics for that tremendous bohemian look or over Plain Tee and jeans for that carefree fashion statement look.
