Handmade Indian Monkey Puzzle Hook Earrings. Stunning statement set embellished with precious green onyx.
This Monkey Puzzle design has an extra-special place in our hearts. Co-founder Amy expresses her adoration for these (sadly) endangered trees by planting one in her garden. The gorgeous tree is Amy's childhood favourite. She was raised in the outskirts of London in what she describes had a "magical, enchanted monkey puzzle forest." It became the first Latin translation of a tree she ever learned too! (Araucaria araucana)
The lace is wax wire which was meticulously manipulated and melted into place.
These lightweight brass earrings are an exotic, bold piece for all nature lovers and fashion pros alike. Elegant earrings carved using the traditional lost wax technique.
Each design is hand-carved by us using wax in our modest Margate studio, before sending the mould off on its adventure to the warm, welcoming team in Jaipur. Our talented artisans in India then bring our design to life.

After several uses, our brass and silver jewellery may start to tarnish slightly. Some prefer the brass when it becomes darker in tone. However, you may prefer to restore your jewellery to its original polished gold-tone.
The best way to polish your brass jewellery is to use a brass polish, we suggest Brasso (Always follow the instructions on the bottle). If you don't have any brass polish to hand or prefer a more natural alternative, cover half a lemon in salt and rub over your jewellery until you see the tarnish starts to lift, rinse well and polish dry with a soft cloth.
Silver needs more gentle polishing with baking soda and a damp cloth.
