Inspired by Amazonian artefacts and natural forms, John's Elytra collection is made from a single shape based on beetle wings - known to entomologists as 'elytra'.  Cut individually from sheets of dyed, anodised aluminium the shapes are rhythmically repeated and assembled to create a variety of sculptural forms.  Organic movement, delicate noise and vivid colours delight the senses and beg the wearer to play. 

*Drop earrings can be worn closed or flared to create a different look according to your preference.  Change them simply by threading the hoop through the opposite end, then give a little shake.  


Treat your jewellery with care.

Your earrings should not require any cleaning with normal everyday wear.  However, should they get dirty then wash them gently with soapy water and dry thoroughly.  

Silver parts, including the hoops, butterflies and links, are oxidised making them dark grey in colour.  Do not clean using silver dip or a silver cloth as this will remove the oxidised surface.  The oxide will very gradually become more silver coloured with wear to look more like gun metal.  This will not discolour your skin or clothing.

Please note:  Avoid leaving your jewellery in direct sunlight for prolonged periods as this can cause colours to lose their intensity, particularly reds and other colours that contain red pigment ie:  oranges, pinks and purples.  This is the nature of red dye, not a manufacturing fault and John Moore will not be held responsible.
