Add a little bit of luxury to your everyday outfit with these handmade & individual, oxidised sterling silver and 24ct gold, textured drop earrings.
Part of the LINEAR series, discreet and easy to wear everyday, yet unusual enough that you know you’re wearing something completely unique.
Studs and longer versions are also available, and a matching necklace completes the set. If you prefer a brighter silver look, these earrings also come in a polished silver version.
|Dimensions||1 × 1 × 2 cm|
Do not use a silver polishing cloth on oxidised silver jewellery if you want to keep the patina. Instead, a soft bristle brush will remove any dirt.
The LINEAR series is a collection of necklaces and earrings all handmade using the same traditional gold-smithing techniques. Each piece produced goes through the same process, but ends up with its own look and character.
Handmade in Scotland from sterling silver and 24ct gold. Sheets of silver are repeatedly heated and cooled to leave a layer of fine silver on top before being heated one final time to texturise them. The texturing technique, called reticulation, creates a different texture each time and means each piece is slightly different. 24ct gold is then carefully applied by hand, using heat and pressure, to permanently fuse the two precious metals together.
These earrings are then dipped in a solution to produce a darkened surface patina. The silver is immediately darkened, while the 24ct gold is left untouched, producing a lovely contrast between the two metals. Over time, the silver will brighten up, which only helps to create a more individual look.
