Earrings by Emily Kidson Colourful swinging earrings with a double drop.The Formica and walnut shapes are cut by hand then sanded and waxed for a lovely smooth finish.

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.
