I’ve been playing around with fantastical flowers in the studio this week. This design is loosely based on the gorgeous fuchsia flower. Fuchsia is a symbol of elegance, good taste, and amiability.
Each piece is hand cut, edges are finished smooth, and then formed. The pieces are all riveted together, a length of steel wire is riveted to the construction and then they are finished with surgical stainless steel French hook ear wires.
The finished earrings are about 1" (24mm) wide and hang just about 2.5" (64mm) from your ear. These are one of a kind.
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.
Please contact me if you have any other questions.
