Erobre Collection Stud Earrings
is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.
Is there anything more delightful than faceted silver? The way the different angles of the facets catch the light, introducing light and shade to your look.
The Erobre studs started out as a small block of blue jewellers wax, carved by hand into shape before being cast in solid recycled silver (that’s better for the planet). Measuring 10mm x 7mm they’re statement enough to add that extra something to your evening outfit but dainty enough for everyday.
The shape references some of the angular holds at my local bouldering wall.
Have you ever had an experience that changed the way you think about challenge? There is a well-known phrase ‘if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again’ – well I now think that only trying twice more isn’t enough! If it’s worth doing, it’s worth having endless tries until you nail it!
Erobre means ‘conquer’ in Norwegian and the collection was inspired by the relentless tenacity of the first climbers to conquer the Dawn Wall in Yosemite National Park. They spent 19 days scaling the climb, camping out on the rock face at height, repeating sections until they’d mastered them. Their experience got me thinking about the challenges we face and how often we let those challenges go uncelebrated – so I made a collection of jewellery specifically aimed at celebrating being tenacious.
