On September 29, 2016, Kate wore these handmade earrings created by Canadian goldsmith Shelley MacDonald.
The earrings are designed after the knife traditionally used by Inuit, Yup’ik and Aleut women. Traditionally it was made with caribou antler, muskox horn or walrus ivory. In contemporary times, the handle is still made with caribou antler but the blades are made with steel.
Shelley’s designs are handmade by Shelley herself and come in bronze or silver. She offers Small earrings ($49.52 for bronze and $57.25 for silver) and Large earrings ($73.50 for bronze and $88.97 for silver).
Here is an interview conducted by Gemma for What Would Kate Do? with Ms. MacDonald.
