Caracol Studs in 18k Fairmined Gold
Classic and timeless snail studs for everyday wear, made in 18k solid Fairmined gold. These were made solid, not hollow, and they are finished with a screw in post for added security.
Land and sea snails, while in metamorphosis, were very common in the early period of gold work. Time was conceived as being cyclical or like a spiral. The metamorphosis that occurred in certain animals, such as insects, represented the never-ending cycle of life-the death, and rebirth that all beings were subjected to. Snails are an ongoing inspiration for Daniella's work.
