These Mackerel will get people's attention! Handmade from copper and vitreous enamel with sterling silver ear hooks.
Handmade from copper and enamel, this necklace is one of my very best sellers.
It is a real statement piece for any woman. If you are looking for someone to strike up a conversation with you at a party, wear the Fox and Crow necklace.
Saba Jewellery always comes gift-packaged and there are plenty of quirky designs to choose from whether you are buying for yourself or for someone else, whether you are an animal-lover or a lover of colour, wanting an eye-catching piece that is a conversation-starter is essential!
These Mackerel earrings are handmade in Dublin. I spent a lot of time testing colours and patterns because I really wanted to get the skin colours right because they are so interesting and beautiful. The eyes are made from fused glass beads.
The ear hooks are sterling silver and the earrings are very nice and light.
Because of the long, curved, vertical shape they are very flattering around the face.
And if you have blue or green eyes it really brings out the colours and sparkle.
I used vitreous enamel on the copper fish and fired then in a kiln at approximately 800 degrees, three times. The enamel is very deep and glossy.
Each enamelled piece is unique: they are all made by hand so even though I repeat my designs, each one will look ever so slightly different from the next because of the enamelling process. Their uniqueness is one of their selling points. Each piece in my enamel range has been fired in a kiln between two and four times.
It should be kept in its box when not being worn as enamel is glass fused to metal so if it is bent or dropped on a hard surface it may chip.
As for size, the fish is appoximately 4cms long
