Dite is a layered take on the idea of studs, aggressive yet elegant statement earrings. The 3D pointed structure is made up of layers of Brass and Jesmonite in carbon, blush and ink or Stainless Steel and black, nude and amber with hypoallergenic surgical steel posts, great for sensitive ears. The earrings measure 11mm x 8mm with the point projecting by 15mm.
Jesmonite is a composite stone a little like concrete but is designed to look like natural stone, I developed the three colour casting technique for this collection. It has a matt finish, feels like natural stone, and has a slightly sparkly finish, like you would find in granite.
Brass is a shiny gold coloured metal and needs to be cared for in a similar way to silver, it is best stored in a box and polished from time to time to restore the shine. Stainless steel is very hard wearing and doesn’t tarnish. It can be cleaned with a metal polish such as Brasso.
Dite is part of the Structure collection, inspired by the idea of revealing the hidden structures that make up the world around us. This piece uses the idea of slicing through layers to reveal the makeup inside.
