LEMON DROP POST EARRINGS
The Lemon Drop earrings are cast in hand patinated bronze, accented with cast glass lemons and white flowers. The posts are 925 sterling silver and they measure approximately 1 1/4" in length.
Lemon is an evergreen plant that belongs to the family Rutaceae which originates from Asia, but can be found in tropical and sub-tropical regions throughout the world today.
The Lemon Drop Collection has been developed in collaboration with the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. It was inspired by the V&A’s Green Dining Room, the world’s first museum café, and its fruit panels designed by the firm Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. in 1886. William Morris was a major influence on the Arts and Crafts Movement, which adopted many of his ideals on the value of hand craftsmanship and the maintenance of truth and honesty in the materials of production. His medieval-inspired designs are noted for their remarkable renderings of interweaving flora and fauna, especially fruits and birds. The designs demonstrate depth of tones, richness in colours and graduation of tints.
The collection is licensed by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England.
