Suspended Leaf Earrings
The Silver Tree is a striking evergreen and endangered species, which is endemic to the city of Cape Town. Its delicate leaves inspired these suspended sterling silver earrings that have been dappled to add extra dimension. Anna Raimondo of SMITH translates the natural shape into something simple and modern.

Anna Raimondo has always had an eye for detail and all things beautiful. She graduated with honors in Jewelry Design and Gemology from Stellenbosch University and completed a Master of Design in Italy at the Richemont Group’s Creative Academy. She also interned as a designer for the fashion brand Chloe, working in their leather department in Milan. In 2010 Anna returned home to Cape Town to launch SMITH. She draws inspiration from her travels and different cultures; whether it’s wallpaper from a 16th century villa or from the feeling invoked by a walk through the African bush. Anna’s aesthetic can be described as organic and elaborate and she loves the challenge of fusing organic materials with intricate techniques. This translates into bold, feminine, lightweight sterling silver jewelry that is handcrafted, ensuring that no two pieces are the same.
