Description

Science is beautiful – and now you can wear proof of that around your neck! These earrings feature a lovely photo of light reflecting off soap-film.

Light reflecting of the front and back of soap film (the same stuff you use to blow bubbles) combines together through a process known as interference to produce vibrant colours – the patterns and shapes you see are caused by tiny variations in the thickness of the film.

I see a river running through an abstract landscape – what do you see?

I take photos of the soap film, and I then print the image on clear plastic backed with 'liquid mirror' to give it a shiny, vibrant finish. The results are attached to a medical grade stainless steel stud earring backing and embedded in resin.

The body of the earring is about 1.8 cm ( 3/4 inch) tall and 1.4cm (1/2 inch) wide, and is attached to a stud earring backing made from 316L grade stainless steel - one of the grades commonly referred to as 'medical' or 'implant' grade.

The earrings will be shipped with a velveteen or satin bag.

If you'd like similar earrings made with any of the other images or items I have listed, let me know - I can generally work something out, though it might add a few days to the delivery time.

These earrings should be relatively water resistant. but I wouldn't recommend wearing them while swimming or bathing.

I want you to be totally thrilled with your earrings - if you aren't, let me know within 2 weeks and I'd be happy to arrange a refund, and pay for the return shipping.
