Fern ~ Raithneach
Planet: Mercury Zodiac: Gemini
Language of Flowers & Symbolism: Secrecy, magic, protection, luck and healing
Ferns were considered an exceptionally odd and magical type of creature, in no small part because they didn't appear to produce either fruit or flowers as a plant should. The seeds were believed to make one invisible when gathered on Samhain eve and carrying them in your pocket would bring good luck in cards. Ferns were very much a fairy plant and it was thought that you could banish a fairy changling to a river or lake by turning them into a clump of ferns.
These gorgeous statement earrings were by embossing a fern leaf onto jewellers grade brass using a rolling mill. The piece is then darkened with a patina solution to darken the intricate details in the imprint and finished in a brushed finish to create a gorgeous aged or vintage look
The ear hooks are made of 14k gold filled wire.
Each piece is then filed, patinaed, sanded and polished in my home studio.
Your piece will come packaged safely in one of my beautiful signature gift boxes complete with a thank you card that explains the heritage of the piece and a care instruction card. If you'd like me to include a hand-written note on your behalf, just leave a note in the 'message to seller' box at checkout.
