These sterling silver Dolphin drop earrings in a larger ‘dress’ size feature an elegant dolphin in a tight curve design, complemented with a 4mm hematite. The earrings hang from silver hooks and are hand-finished in our Orkney workshop.
The deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea surrounding Orkney and Shetland are home to dolphins and porpoises. These aquatic mammals held a special fascination for the people of the Iron Age and continue to fascinate us today. Sheila’s designs reflect the shapes of these elegant animals and the waves of their ocean homes.
