A pair of sterling silver earrings inspired by the famous Fuji Wave.

Handmade in Orkney, Scotland, these polished silver earrings are embellished with hot glass enamel using traditional silver smithing techniques. Supplied in a gift box. 

About the Fuji Wave:

Kanagawa-oki Nami Ura or The Great Wave Off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai was published in 1831 as the first in his woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. The remarkable image features fishermen cowering in three skiffs under the wave about to crash down upon them. Mount Fuji can be seen in the distance unperturbed by the impending catastrophe.

It is likely that around 5,000 prints were made from Hokusai’s woodblock, although many of the originals were destroyed during periods of war or natural disasters. An original from a later run is now housed in the British Museum, where it is only displayed for a maximum of six months every five years to prevent light damage to the colours of the image.

These elegant earrings are ideal as a culturally-inspired gift.
