Earrings: Button-shaped Glass with Gold
These are button-shaped glass earrings with flecks of 24 carat gold leaf, handmade in Helen Chalmers' studio in Edinburgh.
Made in a torch flame and carefully annealed in a kiln overnight to prevent any breakages, these earrings complement any outfit or make a lovely gift.
The earring backs are surgical steel, a completely safe and hypo-allergenic metal. The steel backs are fused into the glass while it is still hot, so no glue is needed.
As they are handmade, the size of the button varies between 12mm and 15mm. (Don't worry! The size is consistent within a pair.) Similarly, the gold fleck will vary from what is photographed.
