Old Oak Spirits recycled silver earrings
Two venerable oak spirits, to whisper forest magic in your ears all day long!
The earrings :
- measure approximately 3 cm x 1 cm including the ear wires (the toadstools are
approximately 2 cm x 1 cm)
- are made from fine & sterling silver
- hang from 925 sterling silver ear wires.
The little fine silver oak leaves have each been painstakingly sanded by hand to a glossy finish, textured with a hammer and metal punches, and detailed with a dark oxidising patina. They are then polished with microcrystalline wax to protect the finish and to slow down tarnishing. They have been carefully formed from precious metal clay, a material which offers a more eco-friendly alternative to mined silver as it uses reclaimed silver. The hanging loops and ear wires are both made from sterling silver.
Each piece of Holaweg silver jewellery arrives ready to gift in recyclable packaging.
Care - Silver naturally tarnishes and care should be taken to avoid contact with liquids and perfumes. This piece is best cared for by gently polishing with a polishing cloth such as the one you'll find included with your order, being careful not to press too deeply into the indentations so as to preserve the dark oxidised detailing!
