Paintbrush // Earrings (almost gone!)

$108.00

Handmade by one of the oldest, most established silver smithies in all of Sweden, these lifelike yet stylized paintbrush peg earrings will invoke feelings of summer in the mountains. Designed to hang elegantly off your earlobe, at the same time they are durable enough to wear hiking, these earrings are gorgeous, unique, and will invoke feelings of wildness and freedom.

Paintbrush have long been my favorite wildflower. From orange to red, pink to white these beautiful wildflowers will capture your imagination and hopefully remind you of happy summer days, even if you've never seen one of these particular flowers. These earrings remind me of sunny hikes in the mountains, and I hope they do the same for you!  

SIZING: 2.5cm long and 2.5mm thick, the peg comes out of the earring 4mm from the top of the flower and is 1 cm long, with a silver stopper on the back. 

 

Silver Jewelry Care:

Our jewelry is made from 1925 sterling silver that is nickel-free. It is so beautiful that you will want to wear it all the time, so here’s what you need to know to make it last as long as possible.

Sterling silver oxidizes (grows darker) over time due to the exposure of different environments, which is completely normal and to be expected!

If your jewelry becomes dark over time and you wish to revive the bright, shiny, look, simply polish it up with silver polish, which typically takes minutes. You can use a silver polish cloth (remember to be gentle, especially with delicate earring pegs!) or soak it in liquid silver polish, and rinse off well afterwards before wearing.

If you would like your silver jewelry to oxidize at a slower pace, ie, stay shiny and bright silver for longer, then we recommend you take care of it by following these simple steps!

  • Keep your box so you can store your jewelry in there when not in use.
  • Clean your jewelry often to get rid of grease, sweat, makeup, sunscreen, etc.
  • Don’t wear the jewelry surfing, swimming (in salt water or chlorine!)
  • Don't sleep in your jewelry (though you can, I have done it!)

TIP: Please be gentle with your earring pegs! Always handle gently, store in the box it came with or another jewelry-specific box, especially while traveling. Do not just stick your earrings in a pocket or bag! If for whatever reason your earring peg becomes bent, you can bend it back but go as slowly and gently as possible!!!!
