Star Earrings 

Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art—
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors—
No—yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever—or else swoon to death.

-John Keats (1795-1821)


Star Earrings 

Star earrings – Twinkling luminaries stud earrings handcrafted and recycled from a 100 year old silver shilling. 

These unique Hairy Growler stud type earrings have fallen straight from the ether into my mind, to my hands and materialised from inside a silver coin?!  I recycle a silver shilling to craft these lovely simple but unusual earrings.  Asymmetrical in nature the offer an unusual, striking look.  The solid star stud is cut from the centre of the shilling star.  The smaller star sits facing forward as per normal stud type fitting earrings.  The larger outline star sits at 90 degrees sideways and looks fabulous.

For added interest, I add an ‘off-cut’ surrounding coin is included with the earrings. Handmade and completely recycled in Cambridge, UK.

Size : Approx 22 mm * 22 mm & 12mm * 12mm (smaller star)
