Blackberry Dreams Hoop Earrings

£198.00

Blackberry Dreams, the sleepy dormouse ideal wake up call. Perfect for the active wildlife lover.

Look happy in their dreams don't they? Each little dormouse is hand crafted in solid silver or gold, and each nest is hand crocheted in fine silver or 18ct gold, for the perfect snuggly little bed. As hoops, these detailed, beautiful earrings are pure practical luxury. Hoop earrings are very practical, as well as elegant. Without a clasp these long hoops are weighted to sit comfortably in your ear, wihout pulling, or risk of falling out. Rings, earrings and necklaces can all be tricky when you're scrambling through woodland, but wildlife jewellery is perfect as earrings.

Dimensions L 40mm, W 4mm, D 25mm. Ear wire (the part that goes through the ear) 0.8mm, widening to 1mm in the front of the hoop. Each little dormouse is 6mm by 4mm. Each pair comes with 6 detachable leaves, from 8-10mm long: 2 silver ivy, 2 red gold oak and 2 silver bramble.These leaves can be stacked onto the hoop in any combination to suit your mood, and the time of year. You can build your dormice their nests in autumn, lose the leaves in the winter and build them up again in Spring as the trees start to bloom, to full canopy in summer. If you would like more leaves at any time, just get in touch by clicking here.

Just above their sleeping heads you can see the dormice dreaming of a juicy red gold blackberry. 

This is a truly special collection. Each little dormouse is cast from the original 6mm sculpture, which was hand sculpted with a sewing needle. You can see the make on Instagram. Then she is placed in her hand crocheted fine silver or fine gold nest, worked in 0.2mm wire with a 0.6mm hook.  And this is wildlife jewellery with a purpose.
