The Keeper of Keys EarringsRegular price £135
This abstract fragment was part of a 2nd century BC locking system, found by a metal detector near Sheffield. The fragment, which now looks more like a Barbara Hepworth Maquette than a fragment of British history, is designed to cling around the ear.
Handmade in England, these earrings bear Lylie’s signature Salvaged Hallmark, indicating that they are made from 100% recycled precious metal. All ear stems are 9ct White, Yellow or Rose Gold. Finally, please note, the butterfly backs are not 100% recycled at this time.
