Growing up I spent a lot of time with my nana and had lots of sleep overs (yes we call her nana!!). Back in the 80s no one had air conditioning. Instead my nana had bamboo framed fans that she would always fan me with when I went to sleep. I always loved looking at the patterns on the fan and frame, it was always intricate.
Fans are said to symbolise prosperity, however to me fans remind me of my childhood spent with my nana.
This fan is decorated with bending bamboo. Bamboo represents strength and resilience. Further, my grandfather taught my mum that is represents flexibility. My mum has in turn taught me this. The blossoms on the fan represent Lunar New Year.
The fans have been specifically designed to reflect authentic cultural heritage, and is done so with pride.
The earrings have been cut from several layers of acrylic, and are carefully pieced together like a puzzle. The fan made from a lovely hue of aubergine with champagne gold tassels. A green bamboo stem and leaves, along with pink blossom flowers adorn the fan.
The earrings measure 55mm across and 63mm in length. US made hypoallergenic stainless steel posts have been attached, with soft comfort backs.
Please note that while no pets are permitted in the sewing studio, there is a pet present in the house.
Please note that the earrings will be sent out in at the END OF JANUARY 2023.
