These earrings are the exact size of an actual wooden match. The extra strand of silver of the threader creates joyful movement when worn. These solid sterling silver earrings signify any new start or spark of any kind. They are a direct replica of strike-anywhere matches. Available with or without hand-made garnet dangle.
The ‘threader’ is a type of earring ‘hook’ which pulls a tiny chain through the ear-lobe. This is much less uncomfortable than it sounds – trust me. It ads a lovely third dimension to this pair of earrings. But if that’s not your thing, the earrings are also available as studs (a little ball, which has a backing behind the ear, and from which the sterling matches hang).
The hand-made garnet dangle is an extra component which is a small garnet set in a full bezel, which dangles on a chain from the top of the earring, signifying ignition.
Available as special order in 14k or 18k gold of various shades – yellow, white, rose, or European green (please allow min 6 weeks to order). Inquire for pricing.
