I’ve finally got round to photographing some new earrings from Abigail Percy. Both feature her signature leaves – sweet horse chestnut leaves above and aquilegia leaves below. I thought they looked great photographed with a couple of Karin Eriksson pieces as both artists like to play with outlines of leaves in their own different ways.
The sweet horse chestnut earrings are hand-pierced in sterling silver and I can’t imagine how much work goes into creating each one.
The deliberately mis-matched aquilegia leaves are gold plated and then beautifully textured with linen. That girl is quite ridiculously clever and is also writing a great guest blog this week over on Design*Sponge.
I’m so pleased with these pictures as they are the first I’ve taken with my new daylight light, which meant I could take them in comparatively dull light. A new age of mirrormirror photography is dawning. Why did I never use proper photography lighting before?
