Designer Genes by Christine Sadler
Designer Genes is a playful name for this collection of jewellery that is inspired by the double helix. Our DNA is not visible to the naked eye, just like our family bond but we know that it is there. The beautiful twisted ladder shape of the structure of the double helix in these designs is an elegant way to bring to life this invisible bond.
These handmade sterling silver and 9ct yellow gold earrings are a beautiful gift for a family member. One sterling silver helix link is attached to a 9ct yellow gold link and the earrings have been reversed so that the silver is at the top on one and the bottom on the opposite, giving them a pleasing symmetry that is quirky and different. The gold link is solid 9ct gold, it is not plated.
Each designer genes helix link is 26mm long by 6mm wide. The total length of the earrings from the top of the hook to the bottom is 66mm and they move beautifully when on, drawing attention to the neck. These earrings can also come in silver and rose gold or in all silver if you prefer.
