These sterling silver drop earrings are inspired by Margaret Macdonald's beautiful gesso panels on display at the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow. Just as Mackintosh's famous gesso panels were often inset with precious and semi-precious stones and metals, these 925 sterling silver drop earrings feature garnet and peridot stones, and 18 carat gold plate highlights. Length 2”. Each piece is handcrafted. Coordinating pendant is also available.
Charles Mackintosh is commonly recognized as Scotland's most famous architect. Although Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh was somewhat marginalized in comparison, she was celebrated by many of her contemporaries, including her husband who once wrote in a letter to her, "Remember, you are half if not three-quarters in all my architectural work"; and reportedly "Margaret has genius, I have only talent."
