These quirky earrings are inspired by both of Lewis Carrollâ€™s â€˜Aliceâ€™ books; the Queen of Hearts from the playing cards in â€œAlice in Wonderlandâ€, whilst the queen print at the centre of these heart-shaped earrings is actually a chess queen, relating to the chess pieces in â€œAlice Through the Looking Glassâ€
The earrings have been made using Art Clay Silver (silver clay, which when fired leaves a piece of solid fine silver, .999 quality). The chess queen imprint is made using an old letterpress stamp. The earrings have then been polished, and antiqued to bring out the imprint detail. The hearts measure approximately 1cm square, and are studs with sterling silver butterfly backs.
