I’ve fallen in love with Grainne Morton’s Drop Earrings and it’s such a relief to look at something other than interiors and building project materials.
Based in Scotland, all of Grainne Morton’s jewellery is unique,. There’s a collection available to order online or bespoke work made to commission:
For objects so small, jewellery tends to have a rather large part to play in people’s lives… be it an engagement ring, a gift, or a special sentimental piece that captures something you didn’t know was missing. It’s an evocative, tiny world of possibilities that Grainne creates within her pieces, and her compositions, that’s so alluring… you may be drawn to a particular precious gem, to the mythology of the ‘all seeing eye’ or the symbolism of an open palm, a moon, a lady-bird, a tiny piece of coral or perhaps a simple button. Grainne may be telling her story, but the true story begins when the jewellery ends up with the wearer, and you imprint your story and your interpretation in to the heirloom.
Painstakingly crafted, each and every object Grainne places in to her compositions are delicately set by hand in silver… each casing measured, carefully, for a snug fit, soldered, pierced and polished, before placing in the tiny object, and rubbing the metal over to secure. Often plated with 18ct gold, or oxidised to highlight the enclosed jewels, the pieces finally end up all around the world.
Grainne has a collection of jewellery available to order online in her shop, as well as a collection of one-off bespoke designs (often featuring extra special tiny collections, that can’t be repeated) which are available for sale in the galleries & shops that stock her work, and some that are available for sale here, too.
Grainne enjoys working to commission, so if you have something in mind, or have missed out on a piece before and would like to work together to make something similar, she is always happy to discuss creating a Tiny Collection, just for you.
As you might expect, prices are not inexpensive, around the £500-£750 on average, but that’s not hugely expensive either for something so unique and special.

Okay, break over, back to the house project. Smiles.
