Olea Earrings // Steel
These tiny hexagon stud earrings have a minimal, graphic feel and are made of layered steel and three colour, hand cast Jesmonite stone in black, nude and amber. They have hypoallergenic surgical steel posts, perfect for sensitive ears. They earrings measure 8mm x 13mm.
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.
Stainless steel is very hard wearing and doesn’t tarnish. It can be cleaned with a metal polish such as Brasso.
Olea is part of the Structure collection, inspired by the idea of revealing the hidden structures that make up the world around us. These shapes are built up from intersecting graphic motifs inspired by building plans.
About Promises Promises: Promises Promises is a collection of beautiful, graphic, modern jewellery, informed by a constant curiosity about the world around us. Their process is led by experimentation, incorporating modern and traditional processes to create something you haven’t seen before.
Created as a labour of love by designer Victoria Myatt, Promises Promises was born in 2014, following Victoria's 8 year stint at a luxury accessories label. The name Promises Promises alludes to the promises we all make to ourselves, from ‘I’m going to be an astronaut’ to 'I’m going to go for a run tonight’, and the optimism and hope this represents in our lives.
This optimism drives Victoria's passion for the brand “When I started Promises Promises, it was because I wanted to keep my own promise to myself. I’ve been a maker for as long as I can remember, and it was time to start creating things that I was truly passionate about. So I called my jewellery brand Promises Promises as a reminder to treasure all those intentions that lead to the life you want”.
