These sculpted Octopus Earring Climbers are small-scale sculptures of an octopus arm caressing your ear. Each side is slightly different. Light, and very comfortable, we find most customers can barely feel them on. These are hand-sculpted with attention to detail, we then polish the wax master, cast it, and hand-finish. We make wax replicas from the master, then cast it in low-tarnish silver. These are solid sterling earrings, the vermeil has an additional finish of 18K gold vermeil (a thick layer of gold).
The earrings have a clip at the top to hold onto your ear – you can adjust this to fit your ear shape. However, do keep adjustments to a minimum – just a few times should do it. Just as when you bend a paper clip back and forth, silver gets brittle with too much bending. (in other words, once fit, resist adjusting each time you put it on!)
