Description

A vintage brass goldfish hangs beneath a handmade paper bead from Ethiopia. From the fish's tail hang three antiqued-brass coloured chains: one holds a green, teardrop shaped, cloisonné bead; one a brown-streaked, yellow glass leaf, wire-wrapped with non-tarnish, artist's quality wire; and one a fluted, gold-plated bead flanked by antiqued-bronze coloured fiiligree beads.

The paper bead is mottled with green, white, and specks of various other colours, and has been lacquered for durability.
Cloisonné is an ancient art whereby metal hollows or cavities, outlined by ridges or strands (sometimes twisted like ropes) of metal, are filled with coloured glass enamel. The result is shimmering colours on a metallic (often gold or silver) background. This cloisonné bead shows little four-petalled flowers, blushing pink, with red centres and green leaves, on a gold-coloured background.

This long, single, 'shoulder-duster' earring is one-of-a-kind, designed to be worn alone or with a different earring on the other ear.

'Goldfish Collection Earring #2' measures 17.5cm from top to bottom. The goldfish measures 30mm long and 16mm across at its widest point, while the glass leaf is 22mm long including the wire-wrapping at its top.
The antiqued-brass coloured ear-hook is without nickel.
