[Enamelled Stud Earrings]

[Enamelled Stud Earrings]


Barnabas Taylor

Brightly coloured or superbly subtle? The choice is yours with these scintillating studs! Handmade from sterling silver, these stud earrings come in a variety of forms. Plain silver with a simple hammered effect harks back to the earliest of jewellery, ancient craftspeople have been using hammers and textures for millennia to capture the eye and imagination. The textured finish is akin to rock, or, to tightly knit undergrowth echoing either the stately crags of the Cornish cliffs or the secret hollows in the woods. The addition of enamel to the surface of these earrings allows bursts of spring or of the sea to enter the frame. The colours intertwine to create different scenes depending on the mood and situation. Each earring is built up individually with as many as 5 layers of enamel. Each is fired using a hand-held torch, the skill being to heat the metal enough to flow the glass, but enough to melt the metal! The torch firing can also react with the enamel, creating interesting oxide effects. This means that each earring is utterly unique and that you can never be entirely sure what the overall effect is going to be until it is finished! Please request the colours you would like in the ‘order notes’ box at the checkout page, I shall do my best to accommodate your wishes but this is not an exact science!
