“Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove.” - Leonard Cohen
Stretched along a tranquil hill in the north of the island, Żebbuġ gazes over the Gozitan countryside, the iconic Ta’ Ġurdan Lighthouse and ever-present Mediterranean Sea. Look, and one may glimpse the village's myriad tales – of Bronze Age settlers leaving their mark on the flat-topped hill of Ta' Kuljat, or the wild olive groves that once blanketed the land, giving it its name.
Our Zebbug earrings feature the impressive view from the hillside village over the Gozitan countryside, and Mediterranean Sea in the distance. In the foreground, prickly pears in vibrant yellow and red complete the scene.

Each earring design is handcrafted – no machines here – and limited to a very small run, so when they’re gone, they’re gone!
Once ordered, I’ll work on making and shipping your earrings right away, but please allow up to 7 to 10 working days to receive them. If you’re in a rush, please get in touch using the contact form, and I’ll do my best to help.
When they’re dispatched, you’ll get an email to let you know they’re on their way!
Avoid contact with water and chemicals (hairspray, perfume, sunscreen etc), which can cause brass jewellery to oxidize and damage to the embroidery. Brass likes your body’s natural oils, and wearing and touching your earrings will help prevent tarnish, so don’t just keep them for special occasions – wear and enjoy them as much as you can!
