BlueBell ~ Coinnle Corra
Alternative names: Blue Rocket, Crowtoes, Cuckoo's boots, Harebell
Language of Flowers: Gratitude, Kindness, Humility & Loyalty
Our precious native bluebells are arguably one of our most beloved and treasured wildflowers, evocative of the ethereal beauty of the once great wild woodlands that covered almost all of Ireland. The were considered a fairy flower, and the bells would summon fairy folk if rung. They're closely associated with the moon and were said to prevent nightmares. In Irish ballads and stories they are also associated with beauty, grief and mourning.
These sweet miniature Bluebell earrings were meticulously hand-sculpted in clay (no easy feat on such a small scale) and sent to a professional casting house to be replicated in Sterling silver. I then file and polish each one by hand here in my home studio before finishing with Sterling silver ear wires.
They're small, lightweight and very comfortable, perfect for someone who prefers a more delicate drop or dangle earring.
