These elegant bird earrings are inspired by the diverse array of birds that inhabit the coast near Eileen’s home in the Scottish Highlands.
The stylised handcrafted silver birds are beautifully designed. They subtly capture the bird’s features whilst retaining a pure and minimal aesthetic. The rock crystal is reminiscent of beautiful sea glass and the wonderful kinetic sea bird hovers and spins on the earring wire, making them really fun to wear.
The lovebird earrings look great worn on their own, or teamed up with other matching items, such as the Lovebird ring or the Lovebird necklet. A number of Eileen’s charm bracelets also feature the matching bird. The Lovebird Earrings make the perfect gift for any occasion!
The earrings are made from solid sterling silver and rock crystal. All Eileen’s work is handmade in Scotland in her own workshop. The earrings have a unique frosty satin finish which echoes the cold wintry landscapes that influence Eileen’s work. In accordance with hallmarking regulations, and where applicable by weight, Eileen’s pieces are hallmarked in Edinburgh, and feature the Assay Office’s iconic Edinburgh Castle stamp.
The piece is very easy to maintain. Eileen suggests using silver dip which can be purchased at most high street jewellers. Gently clean the surface using a soft tooth brush. Stones and pearls however should not be exposed to silver dip, to avoid surface damage. Pieces should then be rinsed thoroughly with warm soapy water and dried using a soft paper towel.
The earrings have around a 3cm drop and the birds are approximately 2cm wide.
