Earrings by Marianne Anderson Handmade by Marianne, these pierced earrings feature Marianne’s stylised 'Florid' motif in a rich, dark oxidised silver. The contrast of the dark silhouette against the large, white freshwater pearl creates an elegant contemporary take on a classic ornamental motif. Comfortable on the ear – these large stud earrings fit snugly around the face. 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.

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. Pearls - Please take care not to apply perfume whilst wearing your pearls and wipe them after wearing with a soft, damp cloth to remove any traces of cosmetics or body oils. Do not use any chemicals or soaps to clean your pearls. Only use jewellery cleaners marked as safe for pearls.
