Earrings by Emily Kidson Long elegant earrings in Formica, walnut and oxidised silver. The Formica and walnut circles are cut by hand with a piercing saw, then sanded and waxed by hand for a lovely smooth finish. The silver is textured with horizontal stripes and oxidised to give a dark grey matt finish. Light grey Formica is used on the reverse of the circles.

Please avoid getting your jewellery wet, spraying cosmetic products directly onto it and leaving it in direct sunlight. My work is made from a range of different materials and it is worth being aware of these and their care requirements so that your jewellery remains in the best possible condition.If your wooden jewellery gets wet, allow it to dry and reseal it with a thin layer of bees wax or furniture wax applied with a soft cloth. Laminate is a hard wearing material often used for table tops and similar, care needs to be taken to avoid chipping and scratching. It can be wiped down with a damp cloth. Oxidised silver has been treated with a chemical solution to give a dark grey/black finish. This does wear away over time particularly in exposed areas which adds to the character of the piece. Do not place oxidised silver items in a silver dip or use a silver cloth as this will remove the oxidisation.
