Beaded Quatrefoil Dangle Earrings
These gorgeous beaded quatrefoil dangle earrings are part of the Integrity collection.
The Integrity collection focuses on the shape of a square and its symbolism.
Here I have rotated a square 45 degrees into a diamond-like shape.
Made of 4 interconnected circles, the form resembles a simplified flower or a rounded equal sided cross.
It takes its name, ‘Quatrefoil’, from the Old French quatrefoil, where quatre means “four” and foil “leaf”.
For these specific earrings – and the matching necklace – I have used a beaded wire, where each bead plays with the light making the earrings glisten like little droplets.
Are you looking for THAT timeless pair of beautiful sophisticated earrings that you can just put on whenever you want to feel fabulous? Then these dangles are for you!
You love the glamour of the Art Deco but also the romanticism of the Gothic Revival period. The earrings have an abundance of both – enchanting, delicate and feminine but not overly flashy.
Very flattering to the skin and necklin with their beaded texture and movement.
How to wear them
They will look particularly striking with an evening outfit, or for a special occasion. Your new staple for long summer evenings and a flowy dress.
Pixie haircuts or long hair pulled back/up will show these earrings in their best light.
Wear on their own or paired with the matching Beaded Quatrefoil Matinee Necklace, available in a separate listing.
Materials & their benefits
Handmade to order. In sustainably sourced solid sterling silver.
Each little circle has been formed, cut, and soldered individually by hand.
On ear posts and stops.
Silver provides a steadying influence. It performs a balancing act by drawing negativity from the body while transferring the positive energies of other minerals.
approx 4.5cm total length x 2.2cm across
As with any piece of jewellery, when you don’t wear them, keep them in a padded box or soft fabric pouch, ideally separate from your other jewellery to avoid scratches.
Safe to clean at home yourself – simply wash with lukewarm water and mild soap. Leave to soak a couple of minutes. Do not scrub or rub. The dirt will fall off at the bottom of the container. Rinse under clear lukewarn water. Pat dry with a soft clean cloth and leave to dry completely before wearing again, or storing.
Do not scrub or rub as this will affect the surface of the metal.
Avoid putting makeup and other beauty products after putting your earrings on , as residues will build up in the little recesses, making the earrings more difficult to clean. Best putting on your jewellery last.
