Bella Figura by Christine Sadler
Bella figura is an Italian phrase that describes an ethos of living a beautiful life by respecting yourself and appreciating each other. This collection of jewellery uses the shapes and forms to pasta to celebrate the beauty of simple pleasures
These earrings take the form of the ditali design which are short tubes of pasta, roughly the same length as width. The earrings are 9ct rose gold but can also come in silver or yellow gold. The tube shape is quite thick so the earrings have a beautiful solid quality. the diagonal lines were hand carved and the effect adds texture and interest as the light plays across the surface.
The earrings measure 6mm wide by 6mm long. Due to the curve of the surface they give the illusion of looking rectangular.
