Handcrafted Silver Earrings with Cultured Pearls
Every girl needs some pearl earrings and I was so pleased with how these turned out that I almost kept them for myself! Inspired by walks on the beach and texture in the sand as the tide recedes.
As with each of my handcrafted pieces, these earrings started life as a lump of silver clay. This was textured, shaped, cut and drilled. After drying and sanding the clay was fired, its during the firing process that the clay binder is burnt off, revealing the silver. Once I was happy with the finish they were hallmarked at Edinburgh Assay Office and then given a patina to enhance the texture.
