About The Designer

Tessa Metcalfe was born in Hackney, London where she spent her childhood watching pigeons and developed a deep fascination for the birds.

The Homage collection celebrates 'finding beauty in the gutter'. Inspired by the city of London, the foot of a pigeon is transformed into a beautiful talisman of fine art jewellery. Cast entirely from pigeons feet found from the city's road kill Tessa creates narrative jewellery.


Each claw is cast from the foot of a London pigeon and no two pair of earrings are quite the same. The solid silver claws have hand plated gold nails adding a splash of 'gutter glamour' to the piece. The silver is oxidised to give a blackened finish which is polished back to reveal the silver underneath. The texture of the claws is brought out with the oxidised finish and the pieces look better with age as the silver comes through. These studs perch neatly between elegant design and narrative wit, with a sharp touch.

Solid sterling silver with gold plated detail.

Each earring/stud measures approx. 15mm in length
