Get ready to rock summer- these are probably the biggest hoops I've made so far! As big as they are they're very lightweight- the large purple discs in the middle are made of Capiz shell, otherwise known as 'windowpane' oyster due to it's thin shell. The discs have been dyed a rich magenta purple- no colour reminds me more of the 60s revolution than this velvet hue.

These big purple rounds hang in a pear shaped hoop made of reclaimed Indian bangles, hammered for strength and shape. Below hang beads of silver metal from Tibet, faceted metallic Czech glass and natural amethyst, it's varied tones and inclusions matching the capiz shell perfectly.

Above the discs is a faceted polished bead of natural amethyst- very unusual in cut, I found this rock in the local crystal shop who pride themselves on offering the best in quality and the most unusual styles.

They measure 2.5 inches wide and 5.5 inches in drop from the top of the house made silver plated hooks.


All my work is made from recycled, reclaimed, vintage, antique and salvaged material- as little as possible is new. I use new wire and findings (for hygiene purposes) and the occasional new bought crystal, which I try to source responsibly. Every piece is one of a kind.
