These Sterling Silver drop earrings are hand made, inspired by stormy days on the Cornish coast and finding beauty in amongst the 'grey.'
Each dome measures aprox 1.5cm (15mm) at it's widest point. The depth of the dome is aprox 0.4cm (4mm).
These unique earrings feature a set Hematite, along with the recognisable Stormy Seas design. They have been designed to give 2 ways of wearing in one earring. The set hematite can be worn as a stud without the drop, or the triangular drop can thread over the ear post and be worn as the full design, with Stormy Seas detailing.
The inside of the domes have been treated with an oxidising treatment to blacken it, which has been lightly polished. The polishing process removes some of the colour and also gives it a sheen that changes the intensity of colour - depending on which direction you look at it, it looks various shades of grey and black, just like a stormy sky! Half of each concave dome is then textured again, small sections of the blackened, polished surface are hand engraved to reveal the silver - it's this that is representative of the ferocious sea. The edge of the domes are flat, front facing and have been polished for contrast against the blackened insides.
A triangular style drop, with a brushed texture, creates a contemporary style drop / dangly earring. The triangular drop measures aprox 1.5cm (15mm) tall and 0.5cm (5mm) wide. With the set Hematite aprox 9cm at it's talled / widest point the entire earring length (when drop and stud are worn together) is aprox 2.9 cm (29mm).
The earrings have a sterling silver ear post style attachment and scroll back. The back of the these drop earrings is finished with a brushed texture.
This unique design would make a great gift for anyone drawn to the coast and the sea, or who perhaps needs a little reminder that beauty can be found on the greyest of days... They complement so many looks and transition perfectly from day to night!
