The Jellyfish Tassel Earring
It's three years this summer since I first created the Jellyfish Tassel earring, lovingly created from offcuts of our leather and suedes. Each pair are uniquely cut and assembled here in our studio.
They were created because I wanted to wear statement earrings, but I couldn't wear anything heavy or anything with an ear wire because stupidly as a teen I had an emo phase a stretched the holes in my ears. It seemed like a really cool thing to do at the time, but fast forward to my 30s and it's not a great look so I am limited to wearing slightly larger studs that aren't made of heavy metals.
At the time I had also been saving all my scrap leather from my first suede / leather collection, I suddenly had an epiphany and realised I could solve my desire to wear bold earrings by making them from leather. I started with a few designs and added two most popular earring designs to my collection.
I love them because they are so lightweight and comfortable to wear. I don't even know I'm wearing them, and I love that they are made from something that might otherwise be discarded.
Over the years we've perfected our technique in making them, and sold hundreds of pairs both directly to our customers and through our stockists. Above is one of our first stockists, Walter and May in York. Each pair is completely unique and make a lovely treat or gift. Because they're made with our offcuts you'll find they match our other accessories.
We now offer them in a whole range of colours and with the option of gold plated, 925 Sterling Silver or Clip on studs, so there is a pair for everyone.
We hope you love them as much as we do!
