About Folde Jewellery
Founded in London, Folde is the shared jewellery design studio of Robyn Smith and Birgit Toke Tauka Frietman. Folde, meaning earth in Old English, seeks to celebrate the endangered heritage craft of horn working in jewellery that speaks of everyday luxury.
Meeting at Central Saint Martins where they both studied, the designers found a similar sensibility in their approach to designing jewellery and their shared commitment to continue time-honoured craft techniques.
Horn, a byproduct of the meat industry, is a beautiful, uniquely textured material that would otherwise be disposed of. Pairing traditional heritage craft horn working techniques with modern technologies, Folde’s collections feel playful yet refined.
Each piece is handcrafted in their London studio using recycled silver, and made in small batches or as one-of-a-kind pieces.
We have thoughtfully crafted the SOL hoop earrings to balance beauty with the everyday.
At just 1.75g each, the SOL earrings are lightweight and comfortable while making a statement in their design. Organically textured silver frames discs of horn that move independently for a look that is both elegant and playful. The SOL hoop earrings are a celebration of horn – a byproduct of the leather industry – as a luxury material and reference traditional inlay techniques in a striking modern form.
The SOL earrings are handmade from organically textured recycled silver and horn – a byproduct of the leather industry. Although the horn is encased and therefore protected by the silver, we would advise you read the enclosed care guide carefully and always remove earrings before showering, exercising and using perfume or lotions.
Horn is a natural material, with varying patterns and colours, and therefore the finished earrings may look different from the images pictured. We currently have the beautiful darker horn available – to discuss specific colour ways for your piece, please email email@example.com.
The SOL earrings are available to ship now.
If you would like to customise the horn colour, please be aware that they will need to be handmade to your order and delivery time can take up to 4 weeks.
Sold as a pair. Each earring weighs approximately 1.75g.
