Resting on sterling silver studs bails, these pretty earring are hand-made on Orkney by Teresa Allen.
The small stud earrings are made from dichroic glass and mounted on sterling silver bails. Dichroic glass is glass which displays one of two different colors depending on lighting conditions. One dichroic material is a modern composite non-translucent glass that is produced by stacking layers of glass and micro-layers of metals or oxides which give the glass shifting colours.
The inspiration of the colours used are the colours of the Orkney sea
