Earrings by Katie Clarke Dark Fuchsia feathers are curved and set within sterling silver three quarter hoop earrings. Like layers of tissue paper the colour varies within the piece from a deep Dark Fuchsia typical of its namesake flower to lighter elements nearer the tips of the feather. The earrings look good on their own or if looking for a matching necklace then team up with Wine and Dark Fuchsia Double Spiky Round Pendant. Designed and handmade by jewellery designer Katie Clarke.
