Handcrafted, Sterling Silver, Pearl Drop Earrings

Handcrafted, Sterling Silver, Pearl Drop Earrings

£50.00Price

Inspired by the sea surrounding my island home, and in particular the patterns left in the sand by the receding tide. These hallmarked sterling silver earrings feature three freshwater cultured pearls.

As with each of my handcrafted silver pieces, these earrings started life as silver clay, which I textured, shaped, cut and drilled. After drying and sanding the clay was fired, and during the firing process the clay binder is burned away, 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. 

 

Drop length 3.5cm - enough to add movement and catch the light. They  come gift boxed with information about the silver making process and the pearls.
