A more out-of-the-ordinary earring, the delightful Meteorite Dropback Studs have a modern dropback design which is simplicity itself.
The stud passes elegantly through the ear, like a fallen earring or dangling chain pendant. However, the entire piece is solid – edgy, modern, even punky. The exposed side is textured, hand-finished with the same distinctive hammering technique that can be seen across the Meteorite range.
All designer Matthew Calvin’s jewellery is designed to be mixed, matched and layered – throughout collections, but also across the ranges. Common traits the collections share are pieces that are very fine and elegant, not overpowering.
The first collection out of the studio, the beautiful, hand-textured pieces in the Meteorite collection use different hammering techniques to shape the wire, and to bring an eye-catching shine to the metals.
The result is a range of solid, weighty pieces which are hand-finished rather than machine-finished. This gives them a unique, crafted feel.

These beautiful hand-textured ear studs were designed with a unique casting and hammering technique, to bring an eye-catching shine to the finish of the metals – gold, rose gold, and silver.
Inspired by his training in pattern-cutting, Matthew applied a new principle of ‘working backwards’, using a ‘lost wax’ casting method to create the pieces in the Meteorite collection. This means these studs, and the rest of the asteroid-themed pendants, bracelets and rings were started with wax and carved by hand, forming a prototype that makes a negative mould and is then cast into silver, allowing for the specific texture.
