Hexagon earrings

Winter's coming it's cold ad grey outside, so we all need a little injection of colour; these new limited edition hexagon earrings are just the thing.

Made using a vintage bead and mixed chain combination, with an 8cm drop length. They are a great statement colour and shape. If you prefer a stud there's no shortage there either with 25 fab styles to choose from
