Whelk trio drop earrings in recycled sterling silver
These sea-inspired trio whelk drop earrings are created in recycled sterling silver. They are comfortable to wear every day, yet also have a simple elegance for evenings and occasions. The hook earrings are light and easy to wear; they are a curved three-cornered design produced by combining three petal-like forms. They have a natural shimmering movement and are positioned a little below the earlobe when worn. These dangle earrings are inspired by springtime on the seashore when balls of whelk eggs are scattered in the tideline like cherry blossom.
The drop earrings are created in our North Wales studio. The surface of the silver has a textured, satin finish. The handmade silver earhook is 0.8mm in diameter and these earrings come with sterling silver scrolls (butterflies) for added security. During the making process, subtle differences occur which results in each pair of earrings being unique.
These earrings and hooks are made from responsibly sourced recycled sterling silver (ear scrolls are standard sterling silver).
Dimensions: approx. 9mm wide, 11mm long with loop. Length from top of earhook to bottom of earring 25mm.
You will receive two hook earrings - the final product image is to enable the comparison of a stud earring with a hook earring.
The Sea Oak collection depicts the tangles of treasure left at high tide. The designs explore the forms and textures of the rippled pods of sea oak and clusters of whelk egg cases. These are highlighted as individual pieces such as ear studs and pendants or combined to create wearable shorelines in the form of statement necklaces and bold earrings.
