This pair of earrings comes from a contemporary tin with just these sorta sad kittens on it. Not sure what it was for or why they didn’t pick a pic with slightly more chipper cats, but working with found objects, you get what you get. I know someone out there can relate to kitten ennui.
Each piece is hand cut, edges filed and finished smooth and then riveted to a length of waxed steel wire. A surgical stainless steel ear wire finishes the look.
The finished earrings are approximately 1.5" (40mm) wide and hang about 3" (75mm) from the ear. Each pair is made to order, so expect slight variations with your particular pair.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
