Silver mussel drop earrings
Alex Yule's ‘Mussel Collection’ was inspired by miniature mussel shells found whilst exploring a rocky Cornish beach.
The mussel's external shell is replicated to reawaken the delicate combined forms in sterling silver. Pieces are finished with an oxidized, polished outer surface to bring out the textured detail and the inside is plated in 18ct gold.
The shells are approximately 8mm long.
