These bird earrings each feature a shard of textured navy and cream pottery, found in the Thames, London.

The birds are hand pierced out of copper. The pottery shards have been set in a strip of fine silver, and the sterling silver ear-wires were hand made by me. They are a long design, which I have been making for ages, and they are very comfortable.

The birds have been oxidised to a rich black, then sealed with jewellers wax to protect the finish. I have distressed them slightly to show the copper underneath, and have left the ear-wires new and shiny.

* Please note that the pottery shards are in the exact condition I found them - they have been tumbled by the Thames for many years - the surface may have imperfections but the patterns are beautiful.

Dimensions:
Each bird is 1.5 inches wide, 1 inch tall (4 x 2.5 cm)
Ear-wire is 1.5 inches long (4 cm)

This item ships from London, UK.

All my items will be sent in a gift box with my logo.

Thanks for looking!
Tania

Most of the pieces of pottery I have found in the river are between 100 and 200 years old, but some are medieval or even Roman! This piece is probably at least 100 years old.

Each piece is unique, and each item made will be one of a kind. I love the fact that each piece of pottery is a little bit of hand made history.
