I’m not going to lie. I made these earrings for myself. But I will gladly drag out my little saw and make you a pair, because I think they are lovely and you deserve to have a pair on your ears, too.

This lovely design is the quintessence of the gothic revival style. It is adapted from the tracery on the rose window of the All Souls Congregational Church in Bangor, Maine. Ralph Adams Cram was the architect who was well known for his love of gothic revival. I adore this more contemporary take on medieval design, as it has elements of the flamboyant style, but is less fussy and more streamlined. I adapted the tracery design into this pair of brass earrings with Argentium sterling silver ear wires.

Tell me if you want these fast and I will put a rush on them. They take a while to saw, file and polish, but it’s mostly joy and a few broken saw blades. I seal the shiny brass with several layers of Renaissance wax and that should keep the brass bright through many wears - eventually the brass will darken and I include a small polishing pad so you can brighten it up. You’re going to love them.

These earrings have a diameter of 1 1/4" or about 35mm. Please look through all the photos for an idea of scale.

These earrings are gorgeous and unique, I really like the intricate designs from this shop! The one piece of constructive criticism I can give is that I'd like to see a sturdier hinge mechanism. What isn't evident from photos is that there's not any solder holding the ear wire hinge in place. The metal is indented to create a sandwich of sorts where the ear wire can move freely between the sides for opening and closing. It works but seems very fragile and precarious. I have my eye on some of the other hoops that are over $100 and will probably purchase if the hinge gets an upgrade.

Smaller than I'd pictured (about 1.5" long by 1" wide), these are still lovely and substantial with obvious attention to detail taken in removing sharp points and edges on both interior and exterior cuts. They hang beautifully and came with clear silicone retainers.

A totally unique look, snd amazing quality/artistry. So pleased. They came packaged beautifully and ready for gifting. I contacted the artist about whether she could make a different pair in a slightly smaller size and she said “of course” ... apparently all of her designs am an be up- or down-sized. So accommodating. Thank you!
