These trapezoids of vintage flowery tin have been paired with and arched wire to create an overall shape that reminds me of little purses.
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" (36mm) wide and hang about 2.5" (60mm) from the ear.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
