The leaf shape is created at the intersection of two identical overlapping circles. Given my love of circles, it's no surprise that I'm fascinated by it.
Leaf earrings are 2.25" (57mm) long and .75" (19mm) at the widest point. Each is hand cut, finished smooth and formed to shallow a shallow curve which adds structure and visual interest. They are finished with surgical stainless steel French hook wires and hang approximately 2.5" (63mm) from the ear. Each pair of earrings is made to order, so please allow for some variation with your particular pair.
Each piece of metal comes to me having lived a previous life--in some cases multiple lives! It is not unusual for the material to sometimes have scuffs, scratches, faded portions, and general wear and tear. If a flawless finish is important to you, please zoom in to the pictures here to look for imperfections that might be distracting for you.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
