Detail from ‘Violet & Columbine’ textile design, 19th century
Detail in cobalt blue from a William Morris design for a woollen textile, ‘Violet & Columbine’, registered 1883. Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC.
William Morris, 1834-96, was an English artist, writer, and social activist and a leading figure in the Arts & Crafts movement, best known today for his textile and wallpaper designs.
The earring pendant trays measure 12mm diameter and 3.5mm deep, and are made from silver-plated brass. The glass cabochons are 10mm across and 6mm in depth, deeper than standard cabochons, creating an interesting and lively magnifying effect.
All earrings have sterling silver hooks and come in a sturdy black card gift box.
