made in britain
Pretty floral earrings made from antique hand painted pottery shards found on the banks of the Thames in London.
Each small piece of floral pattern pottery was cleaned, shaped and set into specially made sterling silver frames.
Pretty and romantic, and very light and comfortable.
The ear wires are sterling silver and hand made as well.
There will only ever be one pair of earrings exactly like these, and you or your loved one will be wearing a little piece of history!
The pottery shards in these earrings were found while 'mudlarking' on the banks of the Thames in London. Each piece of pottery is unique, with a story to tell.
Many of the pieces have been rolling around the river bed for at least 100-200 years. Some are even older. I will give the approximate date where possible.
I select the shards carefully, but please note that because of their age, some of the pieces have surface imperfections. I believe this is part of their charm!
All the metalwork is fine (pure) and sterling silver, and has been hallmarked at the London Assay Office.
Drop with ear wire: approx. 3.3 cm
