These lovely pair of earrings feature a Mytholocial beast called a Griffin - often seen in Heraldry and on old medieval documents like maps or Illuminated Manuscripts!

This creature is made from a mould that I've taken of one of my vintage metal buttons! To fill the mould I've used Ultra Thick embossing crystals for these guys - called Tarnished Gold - a swirled mixture of black and gold.

After creating these little medallions, I've brought out the texture of this fabulous Griffin by adding a coat of gold gilding wax over the detail and then a coat of varnish to seal it! I've teamed them up with black faceted Czech glass beads so they sparkle and catch the light when moved or worn.

The earring hooks are gold plated over surgical steel - Ultra hypoallergenic!

The drop of the earring from hook to bottom of the disc is 5.5cm and the round medallion itself measures 2cm in diameter. These unique pair of earrings are perfect for anyone who loves their jewellery with a hint of Gothic, fantasy, mediaeval or fantastic beast imagery and are very lightweight and comfortable.

Will come to you in an Eco-friendly, recycled Kraft card Jewellery box ready for gifting (or keeping!)


I’ve always been fascinated by Illuminated manuscripts and the fantastical beasts drawn around the edges! This button I definitely snapped up when seen! I just love creatures like this Griffin!
