Description

These colourful earrings feature drops of surfite bezel set in sterling silver and finished off with post and scroll fittings hidden behind turquoise cabochon set in sterling silver. The surfite is a well matched pair with a swirly pattern in many shades of blue and green with hints of pink, red and yellow, it reminds me of fish on a coral reef in a very abstract way. Would make a great gift for the surfer in your life or any one who loves the unusual. The earrings measure approx 36mm by 13mm and come gift boxed.
Surfite is cured epoxy resin waste that builds up as surfboards are being made, this was a very splattery build up with lots of drips causing the pattern. The resin build up is normally considered a waste material but jewellers have started recycling it into colourful jewellery. I cut this material myself and this particular piece came from a workshop in Puerto Rico, you can see the slab in one of the photos but it is not included in the sale. This surfite has tiny air bubbles in it which show as dimples on the surface of the material, the last 2 photos show close ups of a previous pair of earrings made with this material showing a close up of these dimples.
Love the idea of surfite but not these earrings? Drop me a message as I have a bit of a collection of rough so could make you something extra special.
