A note of inspiration from the maker: I based these earrings off of my admiration of a Thunderbird. The details off the bottom of each stone resemble the tail-feathers of this mythological creature. Lightning was believed to flash from its beak, and the beating of its wings was thought to represent the rolling of thunder. Hence where the name “Thunder & Anvil” was born with the thunderbird as my logo. An anvilcloud is a cumulonimbus cloud which has reached the level of stratospheric stability and has formed the characteristic flat, anvil-top shape. It signifies the thunderstorm in its mature stage.
Genuine onyx & sterling silver.
Thunder & Anvil jewelry is handmade by Sam, a sweet soul from Berlin, MD. Thunder & Anvil pieces are made with integrity, with intention to be heirlooms. Sterling silver 92.5 % fine silver, the other 7.5% of the metal is an alloy (generally copper). This alloy is for hardness. All pieces are completely one-of-a-kind and no two will resemble each other.
