One pair of fun statement earrings, featuring an irregular hand-cut oval of copper, enamelled ivy green on both sides. The front-facing surface is embellished with a confetti toss of enamel chunks, which - after the firing process - produce a cluster of irregular dots and textural shapes in many colours. They hang on short hand-formed sterling silver hooks, threaded through a hole in the top of the drop.
Available in a glorious range of colours, from vivid burnt orange to sweet, minty pastel green, O'Brien's enamelled earrings add a pop of colour to the greyest day. Find the perfect match for a special outfit, or collect a whole rainbow of hues!
Materials: Sterling silver, copper, vitreous enamel.
Dimensions: Approximately 48mm drop from piercing. Enamel detail dimenisons are 37mm x 27.5mm x 6mm
Please note: vitreous enamel is actually a form of glass! As such, these earrings need a bit of extra loving care. Please don't drop them on hard surfaces (bathroom tiles are a doozy!) or leave them rattling around in the bottom of your bag. With gentle handling, these earrings will last you a lifetime.
If you intend to travel with your O'Briens, just leave a note asking for a pouch instead of a box at checkout. We'll send them in an elegant velvet envelope so you can keep your new ear candy safe and chip-free, wherever you go.
