These small sterling silver Paisley Leaf drop earrings feature Sheila’s contemporary paisley design in polished silver relief. The paisley designs are hand-enamelled in our Orkney workshop in Verdi enamel and measure approximately 9mm by 15mm.
Sheila’s Paisley collection is a contemporary reinterpretation of the original, intricate paisley pattern that originated in ancient Persia. These designs became popular in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries and were used extensively in clothing and textiles made in Paisley, Scotland. As a result of its popularity, the design became known as the Paisley Pattern.
