XX Silver Bow Studs
The Rebellion collection was inspired by spring coils, offering a fresh interpretation of the visually iconic and attractive shape. The collection focuses on the striped ribbed tactile texture and gentle curve of the original coil and condenses these features into a new refined and graphic form.
The Bow range is a further iteration in the process. It uses the same features of texture and curvature, and explores new shapes. Sections of stripes become building blocks. Layered in a criss-cross fashion they create a bow-like effect. The overall look of the Bow range is actually falsely demure. Bows, and knots in general, are ancient symbols of strength, unions, ties that bind, loyalty and beauty. The Bow range will appeal to those who want to be quietly assertive.
You like delicate, quality pieces yet don’t shy away from picking designs that are a little different and stand out? Then you will love these stud earrings!
Their feminine bow-like shape has had a graphic and modern makeover, giving it an instant update and edge. The slight asymmetry of the bow gives it extra interest.
You will particularly appreciate their elegance and sophistication. The linear textured pattern has a little 1950s vibe to it.
How to wear them
Highly wearable and versatile, these studs are perfect everyday jewellery wardrobe staples.
The X shape gives you the option to wear them either upright or horizontal. That way you can adapt as you fancy, and create a different look each time.
Available in a classic shiny silver polish or a more graphic dark oxidised silver finish. Pick the colour that reflects your mood of the moment!
Why not be a little more adventurous and have a mix of both, one silver and one oxidised? Similar design but two complementary colours will set you as someone who knows how to create their own signature look.
You can also pair them with other pieces from the Bow range.
Materials & their benefits
Handmade to order. In solid sterling silver.
Silver – provides a steadying influence. It performs a balancing act by drawing negativity from the body while transferring the positive energies of other minerals.
Oxidised silver is simply silver that has been tarnished on purpose to enhance some of the features of the design.
approx 1.7cm x 1.2cm bow-like shape on posts.
As with any piece of jewellery, when you don’t wear it, keep it in a box or pouch, ideally separate from your other jewellery to avoid scratches.
Safe to clean at home yourself – simply wash it 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 warm water. Pat dry with a soft clean cloth and leave to dry completely before wearing again.
Do not scrub or rub as this will affect the surface of the metal. For oxidised silver, this will remove the charcoal grey colour and reveals the shiny finish underneath.
Avoid beauty products as residues will build up in the little recesses, making them difficult to remove. Best to put your earrings last, after you have applied your makeup etc.
