To the Mountains recycled silver earrings
"The mountains are calling and I must go". - John Muir
These arch-shaped silver pieces seemed to be calling out to become mountain ranges...so who was I to argue? For lovers of the peaks and the hill country everywhere.
The earrings :
- measure approximately 2 cm x 1 cm including the ear wires
- are made from fine & sterling silver
- hang from 925 sterling silver ear wires.
Both fine silver pieces are stamped and hand-etched to depict a tree-topped mountain range overlooked by a rising sun. They are textured, polished to a glossy shine and then stained with a dark, oxidising patina to pick out the detail. Finally, they are finished with microcrystalline wax to slow tarnishing. The earrings are carefully formed from precious metal clay, a material which offers a more eco-friendly alternative to mined silver as it uses reclaimed silver. The jump rings and ear wires are 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!
