Handmade rectangular silver fern earrings - botanical art inspired by New Zealand's native plant
A pair of textured silver dangly earrings, handmade with a fern pattern inspired by New Zealand's native plant
I have family in New Zealand and so have been fortunate enough to visit the country on a couple of occassions. This design was created after spending some time looking back through photographs of my travels and thinking how the Silver Fern was used in many images and on the All Blacks Kit! I loved a scultpture we saw in Queenstown of the leaf so I wondered if I could somehow capture this design in silver. When I found this texture I knew it was just perfect for the design I had in mind as it also is similar to the ferns that grow round here, linking the two places.

Caring for your silver jewellery
Your silver jewellery should last a lifetime if cared for properly.
You can ensure this by following these top tips:
Avoid contact with any liquids or gels, cleaning solutions, moisturisers, perfumes and chemicals.
Remove your jewellery when cleaning or going to places like swimming pools & jacuzzis!
Store your jewellery in an air tight container when it is not being worn as this will reduce any humidity & its contact with the air
Your jewellery should be the last thing you put on when getting ready!
However, if your silver does become tarnished then you can polish it with a silver cleaning cloth. This has been impregnated with silver polish to remove the tarnish and restore the sparkle.
