Hand engraved acrylic and glass cabochon earrings. Designed and made to order in our Sydney studio.
The tear drop acrylic pieces are hand engraved with a flower like pattern before being set with a glass cabochon handmade in our Sydney studio.
The glass cabochons are set using a specially developed system inspired by the stone setting technique "bezel setting". The pressure created by the acrylic holds the glass in place, without the use of glue or any other material.
The acrylic is then hand drilled and a gold-filled chain is strung through. The earrings hang from a 24ct gold plated shepherd hook.
On the back of both earrings the acrylic is laser engraved with JOAO VAZ.
