A pair of beautiful and usual textile small drop earrings, intricately hand embroidered and painted by Vikki Lafford Garside.

The fabric leaves are mounted on silver plated bails and hang from sterling silver ear hooks.

They are not damaged by water, just lay them flat and leave them to dry.

The leaf measures approximately 2cm high and 2.2cm wide and the length including hook is 3.5cm.

Supplied packaged in a jewellery box and accompanied with a biography about the maker. 

Also available as a matching pendant.

About Vikki Lafford Garside

Like many young girls, I dreamt of being a princess in a fairy tale, with sparkling crystal slippers and beautiful, flowing gowns of the most sumptuous fabrics, adorned with exquisite embroidery and embellishment. I imagined a world of fairies and woodland creatures inhabiting the gloomy depths of the Cotswold Countryside in which I spent my childhood.

My love of detail and embellishment was always a huge inspiration for my work and it led me to achieve a degree in Embroidery in 2002, followed by a Masters Degree in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art and Design. There I created my first collection of dresses based on old versions of popular fairy tales.

Now working as a designer-maker I am still inspired by the fairy tales, folklore and nature I appreciated as a child. I mix traditional hand stitch and hand painting with innovative techniques of stitch, print and heat manipulation to create feminine, hand crafted dresses and accessories. My fashion accessories collection features individually hand crafted brooches and clips in luxury fabrics, adorned with intricate embroidery, Japanese glass  beads, Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls.
