Completely handmade sterling silver cotton reel hoop earrings.
I call these earrings my 'hoopies'! I love them and they are such a special part of my cotton reel range.
I've made mini cotton reels and created larger holes so that the reel slips onto the hoop and moves fluidly. The hoop is made from 1.2 silver wire and I've formed the circle around a cotton reel (you can get an impression of the hoop size from this). I've soldered a silver ear post to one end and hand-forged the other so that the reel won't fly off. The special bit - I've added an indentation to the hand-forged end so as to give the impression of a needle!
As with all of my cotton reel jewellery these earrings (both hoops) have been hallmarked in a unique curve to reflect the labelling found on vintage cotton reels.
Let me know the colour thread you'd like in the check out.
I hope you like these statement earrings. They come packaged in one of my branded boxes, with all the trimmings and I post my jewellery out by 1st class small parcel post. Should you like an alternative please let me know prior to purchasing and I will amend the postage cost on the listing accordingly.
With best wishes,

My cotton reel jewellery is registered with ACID (Anti Copying in Design)
Textiles and haberdashery has played a huge part in my life since a child. With 3 generations of seamstresses and needle women in the family, I looked up to my Grandmother and her skills and remember hours of playing and sorting through her vintage button boxes - whilst wearing homemade clothes of course! I went on to study textile design, and today I express the haberdashery influence through a different medium, my silver jewellery.
