A beautiful pair of sea pottery earrings, handmade in Scotland from antique blue  china collected whilst beach-combing on our wonderful Scottish beaches. The ceramics and china I find is often from the 19th Century - mostly Victorian. 

The earrings are made from pottery featuring the famous blue and white 'Willow' pattern. The decoration is still gloriously vivid despite decades tumbling in the Scottish waves. I've included a photo of the original pattern - I'm sure you'll recognise it!

These dangly drop earrings are finished with sterling silver hooks and measure approximately 4.5cm from the top of the hook to the bottom of the pottery. The earrings come complete with a gift box. (Item: 2098)

All the sea glass, pottery and shells used to make the necklaces are sourced from the beautiful beaches of the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland. Much of the pottery dates back to the Victorian era, when ceramic factories threw their 'seconds' into the sea and locals used to cast their broken pottery into the waves for good luck! The pottery has been gently worn smooth by the rough Scottish seas but the patterns and colours remain vibrant, a testament to the manufacturing processes of the time.
