Handmade hammered and oxidised spirals of silver have been threaded onto silver hoops to form these pretty little earrings.
The spirals are formed from 1mm silver wire, then slightly flattened and textured with the edge of a hammer, so that they resemble the distinctive deeply fissured bark of the sweet chestnut tree, and soldered closed. They are oxidised, then polished, which emphasises the texture, and gives the silver a lovely mellow patina.
The hoops, which are not handmade, are 1.5cm in diameter, and are stamped 925 silver. The spirals are approx 1.5cm in diameter.
These are great everyday earrings, with a total drop of 2.2cm. They are made to order, so your earrings will be unique, and will vary from those in the photographs.
This item is dispatched using Royal Mail First Class Signed For. If you would like to receive it more quickly, please upgrade to Express Delivery during checkout.

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I will ensure that information is protected to a level which meets the requirements of UK law.

You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Caroline Johnston, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me by email at: email@example.com
If a customer contacts me to access, correct or delete personal information held by Etsy, I may contact Etsy at Etsy.com/help for assistance, or request that the customer send a request directly to Etsy.
I currently dispatch orders within 3-5 working days, in order to minimise my visits to the Post Office. Some made to order items take slightly longer, and dispatch within 1-2 weeks.
I sometime have to vary these times during busy periods, so please be sure to check carefully when you order, especially if you need your item by a set date.
Please contact me as soon as possible via Etsy conversations if you have any issues or concerns with your order. I'll always do my best to sort things out for you.
Unless otherwise stated, all items are wrapped in tissue paper and packaged in small jewellery boxes made from recycled card, tied with a ribbon.
I am happy to gift wrap your purchase, for a small charge. If your gift is dispatched direct to the recipient, I can add a gift tag with a personal note from you.
Please be aware that I take your shipping address directly from Etsy, so be sure to check that the address you provide is correct before placing your order. I'm afraid I cannot be responsible for packages which go missing where an incorrect or invalid address has been provided.
I do my best to ensure that you are able to get a good idea of the size of my pieces, by providing measurements in the item description, and a photograph which includes other items for scale.
If you are in any doubt at all, please get in touch with me before ordering, and I can provide further details and/or photographs.
If you receive an item, and you have totally misjudged the size, I am happy to refund or exchange, subject to the terms and conditions set out under my shop policies.
The majority of my orders are dispatched using tracked and signed for shipping services. This means that you can follow the progress of your order once it has been dispatched. Within the UK, your order should arrive the day after it ships.
There are some exceptions, which are sent using First Class Signed For. These will take a little longer to arrive. This will be made clear within the individual listing, and you will be offered the opportunity to purchase a shipping upgrade.
I'm afraid that once an item is dispatched, the delivery time is out of my hands. The times stated are an average, based on experience, but they are not a guarantee. Delivery make take longer depending on customs, local postal services, and the time of year.
