Oxidised Silver Secret Garden Mismatched Lock and Key Stud Earrings
The Secret Garden stud earrings are another distinctive, oxidised silver offering from Acanthus - the fine jewellery line by designer Nicole McIver, whose art history background informs every last detail.
These understated stud earrings are characterised by a playfully mismatched lock and key design. Hand-applied 24 carat gold foil is painstakingly cut, placed and bonded to the silver using the ancient Korean gilding technique of 'keum-boo' to create the contrasting golden finish across each one. Team them with the coordinating Secret Garden pendant necklace for a subtly symbolic approach.
“As an art historian, I treasure the relationship between artist and patron, and I want the wearers of my jewellery to know exactly where their special piece came from, which is directly from my hands.” – Nichole McIver, Acanthus founder
