    Comments about Oval Hanging Pear Earrings:

    Late this afternoon, I received Michele LeVett's Oval Hanging Pear earrings from Artful Home and I just couldn't wait to write a review about them. The design, craftsmanship and structure are outstanding.

    I love how LeVett repeats each earring's circular elements using gold, silver and a garnet. The pear-shaped smooth onyx cabochon, bordered in a very thin silver line, at the bottom of the earring, complements the textured silver circle with a horizontal slightly thicker-but-still-thin silver line at the top. Thin silver lines — straight, curved and circular — appear throughout the composition and serve to unify it.

    A red garnet and not-completely-visible gold circle are mounted on the oxidized silver closed lower section of the large oval circle. This oxidized silver area serves as the background for the garnet and the partial gold circle, making them stand out more than if the background for these two elements were not oxidized. Notice how the gold circle bordering the red garnet echoes the gold of the partial circle below it — a circle that seems to be either emerging from or disappearing into the silver line.

    The open area at the top section of the large oval circle forms its own shape — its own half circle — and provides relief from the activity occurring throughout the rest of the earring. It also suggests infinite space beyond the opening.

    I'm a retired visual arts curator and I've dealt with work in all mediums so I know it isn't often that one receives artwork that is so carefully and impeccably made. LeVett has attended to every detail of this architectural composition. I'm amazed at the level of skill and professionalism reflected in the work of someone who is entirely self taught.

    These gorgeous Oval Hanging Pear earrings are quite versatile. They can be worn to work, out to dinner and/or a movie, to a dressy affair, etc. You will love them!
