Handcrafted, Sterling Silver, Gemstone, Earrings, Inspired by the sea

£48.00Price

These earrings were inspired by the seashore. They feature handcrafted silver discs with seaweed inspired textures, and natural chips of the gemstone chrysocolla  complemented by blue-green facet cut flourite.  

 

Calming Chrysocolla has long been associated with wise women, midwives and grandmothers. It is known as both a communication stone and a protective stone.  Fluorite is a calming gemstone, best known for its fluorescent qualities. 

 

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 3.5cm on 925 sterling silver ear wires. 

They come gift boxed with information about the silver making process and the gemstones.
