Because I make all the earrings myself I can be very flexible and offer you a wide range or ear findings to suit your ears in a variety of metals and styles.

These earrings come with very secure silver plated "lever-back" style findings (as pictured) which are suitable for regular/normal pierced ears.

But can be replaced (free of charge) with:
*silver plated large kidney wires, suitable for wearing though gauged tunnels, or if you simply prefer a longer earring (this will add approximately 2.5cm to the overall length).

For a small extra charge, I can replace the current ear-wires with:
*silver plated non-pierced/clip-on findings.
*hand forged ear-wires, in either a "Fish/Shepherd's hook" in solid 925 Sterling Silver
*"Lever-back" ear-wires in solid 925 Sterling Silver

Please choose the ear wire/finding from the drop down menu.

Your purchase will come gift wrapped in a lovely organza bag, acid free coloured/patterned tissue paper (colour+patterns may vary depending on season/item) and a sturdy outer packing mini corrugated cardboard box, ready to give as a loving gift to someone special or for a treat for yourself.
If you have any special requests, please ask.

✩The hand photo✩
Meet Mephisto the measuring hand, he will help show you the rough scale of the jewellery. The hand is exactly the same size as my own hand (I’m an average UK ladies size 7 glove).
