Description

These lovely pair of pale jade coloured 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 Lapis Jade - a swirled mixture of intense pale jade or sea green shades bursting with mica powder, which gives it the intensity.

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 attached gold plated leaf shaped bails and added earring hooks that are gold plated over surgical steel - Ultra hypoallergenic, perfect for anyone with sensitive skin.

The drop of the earring from hook to bottom of the disc is 4cm 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!)

Inspiration

Ever since I was a teenager, I've been enthralled by Illuminated Manuscripts - their Initial Illuminated Letters and also the mythological beasts that were drawn around the pages - like this Griffin!
