Size Guide

In Ireland An Spideog was associated with Christ on the cross: the bird plucked the thorns from his head and the blood for ever stained his feathers red.
It was also said that he scorched his breast in the stable at Bethlehem while fanning a fire to warm the baby Jesus.

In Irish folk tradition an Spideog was seen as a messenger from the Spirit world.
If it entered the house, it is said to warn of an impending death in the family, or after a death, it appeared to give consolation that all was well with the loved one passed on. it was also very bad luck to kill a Robin, and the offender would be left with a permanent tremor in the hand.

Whatever the truth is, they are beautiful, clever and engaging birds, that enchant many and give comfort to the grieving with their appearance.

These wee Robins weight 3 grams each and are just gorgeous as drop earrings.

They are also available with a rose gold red breast, made from a solid sheet of 9ct rose gold, shaped, soldered and hammered in place. The silver wires on this option have wee rose gold balls on the earring wires.
