Hera's Plumes. Long Statement Tassel Earrings in Deep Blue. Art Nouveau Shoulder Dusters.


£29.00 GBP




Long, elegant tassel earrings make a statement but are still light and easy to wear.  Antiqued art nouveau brass are mirrored and hinged and from them hang silky tassels of the deepest blue-- a mix of cobalt and midnight. 

Earrings measure 6"  or 15cm long and are designed to brush the shoulders

The creation of these earrings was sparked when I saw a dazzling peacock sleeping in the sun at the Willows Animal Sanctuary near my studios.  The deep blue plumes were so luxuriant in the brilliant sun, I knew I had to capture that in an earring somehow.  The peacock was sacred to Hera, and these earrings were named after her.  She is the Hellenic queen of the Gods-- she legend was much older than Zeus. The many eyed feathers of the peacock were said to be the all-seeing eyes of the goddess, signifying her presence.  (thanks to Barbara Walker for her scholarship...)  

All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped with lavender and Scottish heather.
