Museum Artefacts Hollow Moon Drop Earrings

Museum Artefacts Hollow Moon Drop Earrings


The allure of the hollow moon drop comes from the beautiful contrast of the black brass moon next to the warm, neutral tone of the art. 

Subtly striking, these earrings are an everyday style that still get the attention they deserve.

About the design

Our artefacts collection was inspired by the convict gaming tokens. These bone, ceramic, and wooden gaming tokens were found by archaeologists at Hyde Park Barracks beneath the floors and appear to have been hand-carved by convicts from rubbish scraps and animal bones saved from their meals. Gambling with coins was common among convicts even though it was banned at the Barracks and punishable by a stint in the solitary confinement cells. We admire this innovation and feel it’s aligned with the way we use industrial materials to make something pretty for your ears!
