MANDRAGORA

AUD

430

The MANDRAGORA is a third-tier mutation that combines an igneous ear cuff with a molten hilt, capping a large porcupine quill. All metal components are sterling silver. Due to natural variation in the porcupine quills, each earring is unique and your piece may vary slightly from the one pictured.

 

“The porcupine has long been a symbol of self-protection, having evolved a bristling coat of banded spines. What was once soft hair has become weaponised to form hardened quills, to protect this humble creature in its nighttime wanderings.

Like the spines on a porcupines back,

the thorns sprouting from the trunk of a honey locust tree,

and the garnet nestled in a battered amulet,

the talismans of A QUIVER CALLS provide their wearer symbolic protection; mutants of divine defense.”

 

Where possible, our components and findings are made from recycled sterling silver.

 

A note from our quill supplier - “All our quills have been obtained through legal measures from dead porcupines or quills that have fallen out naturally. We do not kill the porcupine just for the quills.” Porcupines naturally shed quills, like we shed hairs, making it easy for them to be collected and sold without any harm to the animal.
