€37.00

Maura is a Tipperary based designer & maker established in 2013. Maura's jewellery is laser cut from FSC certified European plywood & each piece she then hand paints & assembled.  She uses eco friendly materials where possible, from the resin to the glitter to the packaging, to play our part in keeping the environment in good order. Her pieces are bright and colourful, like little pieces of wearable art & hopefully something to make you smile! She uses a combination of modern techniques, like UV printing and old traditional craft methods like decoupage in the pieces.

Earrings are made with some birch & have been hand painted in a lovely shades with a subtle hint of glitter added. They are then finished off with some brass pieces & a pair of 25mm hoops.  Earrings in this range are sealed with an ecological resin which protects them but also gives a lovely glass like finish.

A nice everyday pair of hoop earrings. These would also make for a nice little gift for your sister, aunt, mom, babysitter or colleague or just to treat yourself, why not? 

Earring Details:
• Dimensions: approx 6cm drop with hoop 
• Earrings are sealed with resin to the front. 
• Hoops are s/steel gold plated & 25mm in diameter. 
• As is the nature of handmade, no two pieces are exactly the same. Wood knots in the grain are not considered a fault, just mother nature doing her thing.
• Even though these pieces have been sealed, due to the natural properties of wood, these are not intended to be worn in the shower/swimming etc

Note: Raw brass can develop a patina/tarnish over time.  You might love this look but maybe not, this is a natural discolouration.  However, if you prefer the shiny look, there are a few option to restoring the lustre of the metal.  Polishing cloths work a treat, & solutions like lemon, vinegar or baking soda will work well. I have used these all successfully.
