Earrings by Marianne Anderson Hanging on the end of the hand-formed hooks hang a beautiful 10mm round freshwater cultured pearl - perfectly creamy with a beautiful lustre. The earrings are made from sterling silver that has been oxidised black to contrast with the white pearl. The pearl is held in place with a small oxidised silver disc which adds a simple detail to these everyday earrings. The earrings have a hanging length of approximately 25mm.Each piece is thoughtfully made in small batches or as one-off pieces by me in my studio in Glasgow. I appreciate good craftsmanship and strive to achieve the highest standards every day in my work. I hand-select the pearls and garnets that I use in my designs to ensure their quality, colour, lustre and sparkle is consistent.

Avoid hard brushes or any abrasives as they will scratch the surface and remove the patina. Do not immerse oxidised areas in any chemicals such as jewellery cleaning solutions as this will remove the oxidisation.Gold - To clean gold areas use a soft polishing cloth that is suitable for use with gold alloys.
