The Blackthorn studs feature the fine, intricately textured spiked tips of the Blackthorn tree, created using the lost wax casting method. The Blackthorn tree has long been feared and believed to be a tree that brings with it bad omens and curses, but also has a history of being used in protective charms, spells and amulets.
These studs are 3.5cm in length and are extremely lightweight, weighing in at only 1.5 grams each.
These earrings have been oxidised to bring out the textured surfaces. Sterling silver may further oxidise over time due to the skins natural oils.
