Handmade, apricot-coloured glass unicorn horns hang from antiqued-brass coloured ear-hooks.

The word 'alicorn' is often used nowadays to denote a horselike fantasy creature that has both wings and a single horn – i.e. a horned pegasus or winged unicorn – however, fans of mythology know that 'alicorn' was originally the technical term for a unicorn's horn.

These sweet alicorn charms are of uncertain age, but are possibly vintage (i.e. at least 30 years old), and the brass wire at their tops has aged and developed a nice patina. They are handmade, so all the horns are slightly different, measuring between 20mm and 23mm long (not including the wire loops at their tops), and between 8mm and 9mm wide at the widest part of the horn. The brass wire loops at their tops also vary in length and show varying degrees of patina. I find these variations quite charming, as they add to the organic, old-fashioned look of the earrings.
These size differences mean that each pair of 'Alicorn' earrings measures between 56mm and 44mm from top to bottom. Within each pair, I have matched the alicorns as closely as possible in size and shape. If you have a preference for a longer or shorter pair, let me know in the 'notes for silverlight' field that will appear when you check out of Felt, and I'll send you the longest or shortest pair that I have in stock.
The ear hooks are without nickel.

This is a limited edition Silverlight Jewellery design: once I run out of the lovely alicorn charms, this design will be discontinued.
Other alicorn earrings are available here in my Felt shop. The final photograph shows all the colours.
