When we first saw these oak tree leaf earrings, we were reminded of Henri Matisse's cut-outs.
In his final years the great artist was mostly incapacitated and physically unable to paint or sculpt anymore, so from his bed or chair he began to cut collages out of sheets of paper that were pre-painted by his assistants.
These leafy earrings have some of that character. They are all about shape, very free-form with a friendly feel, and they're mostly flat with just a bit of curve at the edges.
The long hooks threaded through the top of the branch let them dangle and add to the fun character.
