Tiny nest stud earrings
I designed these earrings with little stacks of twiggy silver in response to all the nesting activity that goes on in my garden each spring. They come in three different finishes (shiny silver, oxidised silver, or gold plated silver), and I also make them in oxidised silver with one ‘twig’ in solid 18 carat gold.
Approximately 1cm in diameter, and with the post being fairly central, these sit neatly on the ear.
The earrings come packaged in a smart box with a magnetic closure, and make a great gift.

Images of her work have been published in several books on contemporary jewellery. Christine has work from two collections for sale on Bouf: the 'Sketches' collection based on quick sketches of moving birds and the 'Nests' collection inspired again by the birds in her garden. Both feature solid sterling silver often oxidised to a graphic grey and sometimes topped with gold. Her techniques include soldering forging and laser welding.
