Just quickie this morning with the oxidised versions of the drop earrings from the Park Life Collection and a weekend recommendation for those of you that are going to be in Stockholm on Saturday.
I love the lustre of grey and pink pearls to the blackness of the oxidised silver. As with everything oxidised, these earrings will change as they age. Some of the oxidisation will rub off with time, depending on how often they are worn. Eventually they will find a happy balance between white and oxidised silver, resembling the feel of 'Antique Silver'.
My weekend tips if you're in Stockholm? Take a look at Pernilla Sylwan's exhibition 'Guld & Godis' at Nutida Svensk Silver. If you're like me and find yourself on the other side of the country then one can always look at Pernilla's photographs at http://www.nutida.nu/. Yum Yum.

It's rained a lot of late, but with that comes occasional, but undeniably wonderful lighting conditions, like the wet light through the window above. Maybe it was a break in the clouds, but I took the chance.
I like the versatility of these earrings. Designed more as a special occasion earring, I've been road testing them everyday and can say that I feel a little bit special when I wear them. The verdict? They tone up the everyday and compliment the special occasion.
