Paula Bolton Margaret MacDonald Gesso Collection Garnet And Peridot Earrings
Paula Bolton is a jewellery designer inspired by the Impressionism, Symbolism, Art Nouevau and Secessionist movements. Her pieces are handcrafted in Sterling Silver by a family of ethical jewellery manufacturers on the beautiful Indonesian island of Bali.
This collection is typical of English born and Glasgow taught Artist, Margaret MacDonald, who worked closely with Mackintosh when her work became one of the defining features of the "Glasgow Style" during the 1890s. Inspirations from the Margaret MacDonald gesso panels in Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery. Details from her jewel like Gesso paintings into which she often added glass beads inspired many Paula Bolton designs. The glass has been substituted with garnets and peridots.
These earrings have been expertly crafted in Sterling Silver with 18ct Yellow Gold detailing. They feature juicy Garnet cabochon gemstones bezel set into the centre of the design with smaller Peridot cabochons mirrored on either side to mimic the symmetry found in Margaret MacDonald's famed Gesso panels. These earrings are finished with Sterling Silver butterfly backs to ensure secure wear.
