Description

A lustrous Australian South Sea pearl is cradled within oxidised and sterling silver shells. A Leopoldseder classic, each brooch is made individually, and the process can only be controlled to an extent. This means that the ripples and undulations in the metal fall differently each time, making each brooch unique.

The Sea Collection combines fluid forms and contrasting textures with moody gems and luxurious pearls. A celebration of the artist’s sea-side childhood spent on the Mornington Peninsula.

Made in Australia.

Features

Materials Australian South Sea pearl, Oxidised sterling silver
Care instructions Avoid harsh cleaning chemicals in order to preserve the finish.
Note The oxidised finish is a surface treatment that can be achieved to blacken silver. As it is a surface finish, it can wear on more exposed parts of the jewellery, revealing the silver beneath. Generally this happens gradually and adds character to the jewellery.
Dimensions W 5cm
Type Handmade
Origin Made in Australia
