made in britain
Pretty and delicate earrings made out of pottery shards that were found on the banks of the Thames in London.
Each tiny piece of pottery features a hand painted star, which was then cleaned, shaped and set into specially made sterling silver frames.
Light and comfortable to wear, these are perfect everyday earrings.
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!
Please note that the photographs show the earrings greatly enlarged, and any imperfections are not really visible to the naked eye!
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.
Studs are approx. 8mm in diameter, 3mm deep.
