I woke up with this simple idea in my head one day this week. I really like the little fold of tin revealing both sides of the metal.
Each piece is hand cut, edges filed and finished smooth and then each face of the tin is sanded to a bit of a matte finish. The golden tin is connected to a ring of waxed steel wire and a surgical stainless steel ear wire finishes the look.
The finished earrings are approximately .625" (12mm) wide and hang about 2.25" (54mm) from the ear.
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.
