These Orkney Yole drop earrings in sterling silver feature a traditional sailing boat on the crest of a wave. The curved wave is hand-enamelled in our Orkney workshop in Tempest enamel. Each earring measures approximately 20mm by 24mm with an overall drop of 40mm including the sterling silver hook.
Sheila designed the Orkney Yole collection to celebrate Scapa Distillery, founded on the shores of Scapa Flow in 1885. Scapa’s single malt whisky, Skiren, is known for its smooth, creamy sweetness and its name means ‘glittering bright skies’ in Old Norse. Sheila’s design captures sailing boats on the shimmering waters of Scapa Flow, just below the distillery, with the enamel colours reflecting the greens and blues of the sea and sky.
