Potato Peel Earrings. Individually Hand made in Sterling Silver. No two pairs are alike. Each pair is individually handmade and bears the hammer marks from the forging process as a feature of the design and hallmarked at the London Assay Office.. Overall length varies from 15-30mm, not including hooks, please specify the size you’d like and any other design details and I will make your pieces of potato peel especially for you.
Originally made for the inaugural Guernsey Literary festival in 2011, Athene has designed and handmade a small collection of these each year since, making them truly limited and unique. Made with kind permission of the co-author Annie Barrows, who has one of the pieces herself.
Each product comes individually packaged in a branded gift box

All of Athene’s pieces are handmade by her and her small team in their St Peter Port studio. Each piece is individually crafted with care and attention to be made perfectly for you.
Of course, many items are available from stock but bespoke work can take longer, but it is definitely worth the wait for the end result, a beautifully made, unique piece, just for you.
After your piece is made for you, it may need to then be sent to the London Assay Office to be hallmarked.
Once your piece has been hallmarked, it will be sent back to the studio for its finishing touches, we will polish it and package it with care before we send it to you.
Our average processing time is 1-2 weeks, however, at busy times of the year, please allow up to 28 days for your purchase to be processed and shipped to you.
If you require your purchase in a certain amount of time, please contact us before ordering and we will try our best to do this for you.
UK customers please note
All our jewellery is handmade in and posted from our studio in the Channel Islands. All our prices are ex VAT, therefore I pre-pay the VAT for you here in Guernsey at the post office and it is included in your postage cost. This avoids you having to pay any further customs admin charges.
If you’re not absolutely delighted with your purchase, of course you don’t have to keep it. You don’t want to keep things that don’t make your heart sing. Just send it back in the same unworn condition that you received it within 21 days and we’ll return your payment. No problem and no quibbles.
If any of our pieces have any kind of fault, however small, we’ll of course sort it out straight away. Just let us know and we’ll do the right thing.
