Byzantine Blueberry Earrings (Post and Nugget Style)

$52.56


Chainmail was originally a type of armor made from interlocking small metal rings. Commonly used up through the Middle Ages, it was time consuming to make and as as result was quite costly. Today chainmail is most commonly used for jewelry. Historical patterns as well as new ring combinations have become popular both for their physical durability and timeless aesthetic.

Blueberries were an important food source for early settlers in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL). For generations, summertime blueberry picking has been a tradition. What began out of necessity is now celebrated at events such as the annual Blueberry Festival in Brigus, NL.

Byzantine blueberry earrings, part of the Flora and Fauna Collection, feature sterling silver Byzantine chainmail and 4mm Lapis Lazuli beads from Afghanistan. The the rich blue beads capture the color of sun-ripened wild blueberries. They measure just over 2 inches ( 5cm) in total length and come in a box, ready for gifting.
