Dangly drop earrings featuring those iconic little red spotty mushrooms, or toadstools, one of the quintessential motifs of a fairy tale woodland.About the earrings:
These sterling silver drop earrings each have a tiny toadstool charm with a red spotty glass top and handcrafted silver stalk. The image used in the glass charm is from a real original photograph of a Fly Agaric fungus, so the spots are irregular as they naturally would be.
Each silver toadstool measures approximately 8mm x 12mm and hangs, at angle, from a 15mm silver chain. The earrings have simple fishhook fittings.
Please note each little toadstool charm will differ, the stalks are made free-form from recycled silver pieces, allowing them to have the organic shape much like the real fungi which vary from mushroom to mushroom.Materials:
925 Sterling silver, glass.Toadstool facts and symbolism:
