Dirk Handle Twist Earrings
This knot design was usually found braided into the handle of a Dirk – a traditional and ceremonial knife of the Highland Cathairean (cateran or warrior). The strands of the knot weave in and out of each other, forming a protective pattern.
We’ve actually gone one step further with these earrings by taking the pattern and twisting it again, making a set of beautiful twirling, golden sculptures. We make these in our casting foundry by first creating wax models that are the exact size and shape of the finished earrings. Then we place the models in a special plaster and heat them in our kiln until the wax melts away. We then melt the gold down and pour it into the plaster – filling up the spaces the wax models left behind. The rest is the skill of filing, shaping and polishing by hand until we have something as beautiful as in our pictures, but that our hand-made process has rendered subtly unique and individual.
These particular earrings are crafted in 14K gold, giving a rich, silky, lustre that radiates quality and elegance.
