Handcrafted, Sterling Silver, Pearl, Earrings
Pearl earrings always add a touch of understated glamour and these drop earrings feature grey freshwater cultured pearls with handcrafted silver. The design was inspired by the seashore, rock pools and the textures in the sand, left by the receding tides.
As with each of my handcrafted silver pieces, they began life as silver clay which I textured, cut, sanded and drilled to create the silver discs. Once fired, the binder in the clay is burned away leaving the sterling silver which was hallmarked at Edinburgh Assay Office. I enhanced the sand textures on the discs with liver of sulphur to create a patina.
Drop length 2cm on 925 sterling silver ear wires.
They come gift boxed with information about the silver making process and the pearls.
