Solid Sterling Silver Dragon Earrings by Quirky Tiger
These incredibly detailed sterling silver dragon earrings are handmade in London by Lexi Dick, owner of unique jewelry makers Quirky Tiger.
These are the original dragon earrings, designed by Lexi in the early 1980s which where sold for many years on her popular Covent Garden Saturday stall. Lexi handmade the original pattern many years ago, and each pair of dragon earrings are cast in solid sterling silver by the lost wax casting method, hallmarked and hand polished. They have an oxidised finish to bring out the detail so it is strongly recommended that you don’t use Silver Dip to clean them, but use a silver polishing cloth to clean instead.
These silver dragon earrings come in their own stylish gift box and velvet bag.
