Triangles have been used as a symbol to communicate hidden messages for thousands of years. A triangle represents manifestation, enlightenment, revelation, and a higher perspective. It is often used to mark the cycles of growth that lead to a higher state of being. Spiritually, it represents a path towards enlightenment or connection to an omnipresent being.
Hexagons are startlingly common in nature and their properties are somewhat awe-inspiring. It's a recursive symbol, a symbol of symbolism, of the universe's inherently symbolic order.
Each triangle is hand cut, matte finished and riveted to a tin backing plate. The final two rivets attach a triangular bit of waxed steel wire to the hexagon and a surgical stainless steel ear wire finishes the look.
The finished earrings are approximately 1.25". (30mm) wide and hang about 2.75" (68mm) from the ear. Each pair is made to order so please expect your particular pair to be unique.
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.
