Worldly Gia

Eighteen new items have just been added to the shop at aileen.etsy.com including the Gia earrings. Sharp eyes will notice they feature the same sterling silver component as the Paige and Cyrilla, but these earrings have their own style.

A true study in international collaboration, the stunning Swiss and London blue topazes were handpicked at a bead show in New York, while the sparkly lemon quartzes were found at a similar event in Hawaii. The tiny crystal quartzes were sourced during a trip to Seattle, and the chandelier components were from my favourite sterling silver shop in the Hong Kong district of Sham Shui Po. Doesn't the combination look amazing?
