These Sterling Silver stud earrings are inspired by stormy days on the Cornish coast and finding beauty in amongst the 'grey.'
They are formed of a discs of Sterling Silver that have been shaped in to domes. Each dome measures aprox 0.8cm (8mm) at it's widest/tallest point. The depth of each dome is aprox 0.2cm (2mm).
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 and 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. The earrings have a sterling silver ear post style attachment and scroll back. The back of the these studs 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!
These earrings form part of a wider collection, with matching items available.
