Gold Artemis Earrings


Gold wire pendant earrings.

In stock

Inspired by Artemis, the Ancient Greek goddess of the hunt, the wilderness and wild animals.  She was also the protector of young girls and was worshipped as one of the primary goddesses of childbirth and midwifery.  The strong and striking design of these earrings is inspired by Artemis’ arrow and would work just as well to complement a bold outfit as it would to lend an edge to a more understated one.

Approximately 3cm earring drop. All earring ear posts and findings are either sterling silver or 14ct gold filled.

Each pair of earrings is completely unique and is handmade by the Black and Sigi team in their studio in Leigh on Sea. Because all of the pieces are handmade, they may vary slightly from the image shown.

The wire wrap technique can be traced back to 1446 BC when the process involved using flattened sheets of metal which were cut into strips and rolled into tubes. These days, the team at Black and Sigi have built their designs on affordable, contemporary costume jewellery using 9ct gold plate and 10% sterling silver filled copper wires for the main part of their designs.  Because there is a slightly thicker plating on the silver, the prices are the same for both gold and silver options.

We believe in accessibility but never compromising on quality, style and design. Our wire wrapping technique, passed down from generation to  generation, allows us to be creative and innovative, and even though we are self-taught, it doesn’t stop us from constantly experimenting, allowing us to keep this traditional skill modern and alive.

The Artemis design is our nod to the arrow of Artemis, it is a strong and definite design, creating a subtle statement for all those that wear it.
