The Story of The handmade pear
Hi! We’re Sophie and Amy.
We first met at college in 2002 where we studied Animal Management together. After college, we went to university together and became animal loving, lifelong friends. We have studied, lived and worked together. We both qualified as Veterinary nurses and have a passion for animal care and welfare. After Sophie had her son, she took a change in direction and became a qualified nail technician. Starting her own business named ‘Beauty Ritual’.
Fast forward to 2020 when, during lockdown, we both found ourselves out of work.
We decided to start 'The Handmade Pear' when a conversation on zoom, with our close friend, reignited our love for statement dangly earrings.
We absolutely LOVE creating, making and selling our unique earrings and sharing our crazy journey with you all.
We cannot thank you enough for your support and encouragement.
With special thanks to our family and friends.
We hope you enjoy our earrings as much as we enjoy creating them!
Love Sophie and Amy x

"Absolutely love my rainbow heart studs! They bring a smile to my face every time I look at them 💜 Very comfortable and lightweight, I will be buying more soon!"
“I have 4 pairs of earrings from The Handmade Pear now - all very different but all very striking. They are great value, look amazing and are super lightweight and comfy to wear. I’ve been a stud wearer for years but am now a “dangly” earring convert! I love how they lift an outfit and add some instant glamour!”
Frequently Asked Questions
What are your earrings made from?
All of our earrings are made with love using polymer clay. Every design is unique and no two earrings are the same. We use either stainless steel or brass findings (the piece that goes in your ear). This is due to these two metals being hypoallergenic, hard wearing and rust resistant.
What is your return policy?
For hygiene reasons we can not accept any returns, unless faulty. If you have any problems with your earrings please contact us as soon as possible at
Do you offer gift cards?
This is something we are working on and hope to be able to offer soon! Watch this space!
