Handcrafted Silver, Pearl Drop Earrings
Classic pearl earrings - with handcrafted silver and 3 freshwater pearls. Inspired by the sea and the patterns in the sand when the tide recedes. Drop length 3.5cm - enough to add movement and catch the light.
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.
