These charming snowflake earrings are truly magical, and perfect for anyone with a love of the snowy outdoors!
Eileen has been inspired by the icy winter landscapes that surround her home in the Scottish Highlands. These beautifully stylised snowflakes are elegant and simple, they are very slightly concave, capturing the light and enhancing the sparkle! The snowflakes have a specialist frosty satin finish which echoes the cold wintry landscapes that influence Eileen’s work.
These wonderfully feminine earrings look great with sweaters in winter and with dresses in summer. So versatile and incredibly tactile! They look great when worn on their own, or they can be teamed up with other matching items such as the Snowflake Pendant, the Arctic Charm Bracelet, or the Winter Bangle.
The earrings are made from solid sterling silver which gives them a lovely weight, reflecting the quality of the pieces. All Eileen’s work is handmade in Scotland in her own workshop. 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.
They are 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 snowflake is approximately 1.2cm in diameter. They have standard post fittings on the reverse. The earrings come with a unique silver push on back, with a hidden rubber insert, ensuring they are comfortable and secure.
