Medium Golden Brass Spira-Hoop Signature Earrings
*with multiple dangle options
*from The Fool Collection
These earrings are the medium version of a signature shape I created after I saw an ancient set of earrings from the Byzantine era. Granted, theirs were hollowed-out metal, but their shape made me want to try to re-make them in a more modern way.
So I made these in this medium size first. But then quickly saw how they would be awesome in the small and large sizes too. The set of three really gives you all the styles you’d need for any occasion. They look robust, but because of the way I’ve weaved the metal, they’re like the aero chocolate balls – light and airy so easy to wear, you’ll feel no ear fatigue no matter how long you wear them for. I even sleep in my small pair sometimes.
And yes – you figured correctly – I own a pair of each size.
But if you’re undecided about which size to get, I’d say start with this Medium size. It’s the most versatile – it can effortlessly transition from day to night and from casual to flirty, or out to dinner. You just need to match your dangles to the occasion. Or wear them without dangles.
I make a variety of dangles that you can change and mix and match as you wish. So I travel with one pair of hoops and maybe 10 pairs of different semi-prescious stone dangles, which gives me a quick and easy alternative to switch between outfits or day into night.
You can see examples of the dangles in the gallery images. If you like a pair from the gallery, message me to let me know you want a pair like them.
*Remember that no two pairs are alike as I only work with naturally shaped stones. Please also note the dangles are sold separately – so you can mix and match them as it suits you.
Anywho – the Spira-Hoops made it into The Fool collection because they’re infinitely adaptable and can be playful or serious – day or night. Their best quality is their versatility.
They’re the ultimate chameleon accessory, because they also travel well – you can take one small set and one medium, or a small and a large. Then pack a tiny pouch full of fun colour and size dangles, and you’re set for the day, a nighttime party, or elegant evenings.
You can even mix and match your dangles between your earrings and the necklace (a very natural complement to the Spira-Hoops).
OR – you can wear the necklace as a bracelet as it can be adapted to a variety of widths (see me demo that option in the last video here).
Either way – the Spira-Hoops aim to set your intention and attention on creating a little more ease and fun in your day and life. By playing around with colours and stones, but also adapting your style with ease – not overcomplicating things.
So I hope you would… See if you can dare yourself to get some of the more grand-looking pearl dangles and match them with your favorite jeans. You know – anything goes!
*The last few photos in the gallery will give you an idea of how the small, medium, and large earring sizes compare, and you can see some dangle options to consider. If you want a colour, or a type of stone that is not on display, email me – I’d love the chance to find them for you :o)
27mm in diameter, and 4mm thick (approximately).
Base metal — Golden Brass. It looks just like 14K gold to start with and will wear pretty well.
Here are the most common ring sizes and their conversions across the main geographical regions.
If you don’t know the ring size you need, you could measure the circumference of your finger by using a piece of string. Wrap the string around your finger carefully without tightening or loosening it too much, and tie it in a knot. Cut the string anywhere else except on the knot. Then measure from one end of the cut to the other (across the knot). That’s your finger circumference to use to check up your size.
If you’re unsure – please contact me – I can help :o)

All pieces are created with natural metals and stones, which makes them a little more vulnerable to their external environment. Please keep them away from all chemicals and acids (like perfumes, creams, or hand sanitizers – anything that you wouldn’t eat :o).
Ideally, store them in an enclosed pouch or box, as all metals react with air and water particles over time. You’ll receive your piece inside a plastic zip-lock pouch with an anti-tarnish strip inside for that reason (certainly not because it makes it attractive – sorry). If you can keep your pieces inside those – great.
But I know we have better things to do than to be super strict with storing our jewelry the right way, so when your favorites get a little less than perfect, here are a few quick & easy steps to refresh them:
- You’ll receive a shining cloth that you can use to clean your piece with, from time to time. This is great for a quick clean. Use the cloth as is – DO NOT WET it please, as it will get ‘gummy’. It will clean pretty much all types of metal with moderate tarnish. It will last a while, so keep it – it’s a good tool to have on your side.
- When cleaning your pieces – be careful – don’t be too harsh with the stones. These can move or break – so please be kind.
- Should you need to clean copper with more serious tarnish: use a salt : vinegar : water paste in roughly 1:3:3 parts ratios. Immerse the pieces (try to avoid dipping the stones for too long), and gently scrub with a toothbrush into the more intricate areas. This is a fantastic cleaner for copper – also a great party trick :o)
- To clean your gold-like brass pieces: use normal toothpaste and an old toothbrush. Coat the piece with the toothpaste gently (don’t use water yet, or maybe just a little if needed. Rub with the brush or massage in with your fingers. Wash the toothpaste off thoroughly within a minute, as the paste may start to harden, which makes it harder to get off afterward. Make sure you’ve got all the toothpaste out.
