An iconic upland species,native to the Scottish highlands, the mountain hare is famed for its camouflage. In summer, their coat is a grey-brown colour with a tinge of blue, making them hard to spot against the typical backdrop of heather moorland. In winter, they change to almost completely white to camouflage with snow – only their ear tips stay black. Mountain hares are larger than rabbits, but smaller than brown hares and have shorter ears.
These adorable earrings feature a mountain hare gazing out through the heather. They are made from three layers of gloss and marble acrylic with engraved and hand inked sections. They measure 4.5 c in length and are suspended from a complimentary circle studd with allergy free ear post. Although intricate in design they are still light in weight at just 6 grams.
