This striking earring can be worn two ways: both as an earcuff and as a septum ring. Once again Melosi has been able to capture the beauty which arises out of destruction - the broken, abandoned, and overlooked, a recurrent theme in her work - but this time inspired by family history. The LASTCHANCE/LOSTCHILD collection plays with the contrasts inherent in the barren mountain landscape of Butte, Montana, which has been left ravaged by underground and open-pit mining. It embraces raw metal materials of antiqued silver and coppery tones which have been intensified by applying heat to achieve a rainbow effect, in addition to the setting of uncut, locally sourced minerals such as Pyrite and Chalcopyrite. Made in East London RAINBOW ECOSILVER CHARM WITH BLUE ENAMEL DETAIL (HAND-LACQUERED); ANTIQUED STERLING SILVER RECTANGULAR TRACE CHAIN ATTACHED TO RAINBOW ECOSILVER RING Always remove your lacquered jewellery when applying scent, lotions and potions, or even better, always put your jewellery on last when getting dressed. Never wear your lacquered jewellery in the shower or when swimming. Oxidised jewellery, even pieces that have been lacquered, can change colour over time because of exposure to sulfides in the air, as well as humidity. Use a soft polishing cloth to gently clean your lacquered silver jewellery. Gently rubbing the piece with the cloth will most often restore the shine. Take care to protect your jewellery and always store in a jewellery box, taking care not to drop, or scratch.
