Calm & Stormy
2 in stock
These sterling silver cloud earring are made to dangle. The surface has been blackened with a natural sulphur oxide, giving it a darker finish, while the higher points and earring hooks are polished, allowing a special glimmer.
They are made from 100% reclaimed/recycled sterling silver and surface have a brushed matt finish. For more information on why it’s important to use reclaimed/recycled silver click here.
They are handmade with custom made earring hooks that are especially comfortable to wear and they come gift packaged and with special care instructions.
- Note – every cloud is handmade and has a unique set of rain – no two are exactly identical.
The title of these earrings comes from the drink ‘Calm & Stormy’. These guys are doing amazing stuff in an attempt to end single use plastic bottles and instead sell their drinks in aluminium. Did you know that aluminium drinking cans are the most recycled packaging product in the world, or that aluminium can be recycled endlessly without compromising any of its quality, or that 75% of the aluminium ever produced is still in use today? Check out their website for loads of other great details and try their delicious drinks when you get the chance!
These earrings were originally made for Katrina. In our mid twenties, whilst lying on the warm grass in Munich’s famous English Gardens, Katrina started naming the cloud types above us. She taught me about the difference between the wispy one called Cirrus and the bumpy one called Cirrostratus – not to be mistaken with the similar looking one called Stratocumulus. From my experience, these are the kinds of things can occupy a quiet afternoon in the Munich sun. Katrina is a marine biologist by trade and has one of those naturally bright minds. She knows loads of stuff and is humble in telling you about it. Now, whenever I look up at the clouds I think of her all these years later.

“My partner and I engaged Laura with the task of commissioning a unique piece of jewellery. Laura was loosely briefed by my partner and totally took the concept and ran with it. Communication was forthcoming with frequent updates along the way, including illustrations and photos of concepts. The final product blew all involved away! Couldn’t recommend Coral Covey any more thoroughly!”
“I am so delighted with the ring Laura designed and made for me. It exceeded my already high expectations! It was great to work with such a thoughtful professional who uses environmentally friendly materials and practices”
“Laura was attentive and really listened to what I wanted. She is very friendly and easy to deal with, communicating through the process with sketches, test models and the finer details. I would highly recommend Laura for any jewellery with a personal touch. It makes it all the better knowing its made from reclaimed silver!”
