Children of Lir – Drop Earrings
This collection is inspired by the old Irish legend of children who were turned into swans for 900 years. The heart at the centre represents the dedication they showed by remaining together as swans for the rest of their lives.
A pair of swans entwine in each earring to reveal a heart symbolising love and dedication. One of the swans is sandblasted to give the illusion that one swan is slightly behind the other in the embrace.
Light can shine through the translucent blue acrylic* (represents Lake Derravaragh in the story) in the earrings revealing a Celtic triple spiral (triskele – represents eternity).
Each drop earring is handcrafted from sterling silver & translucent acrylic and measure 18mm in diameter.
*Please note that the acrylic used can be treated exactly the same as the silver in terms of maintaining the piece. It has been specifically chosen because of its anti-scratch and easy polishing nature.
