Increasingly rare vintage brass “gengerbread” petals are taken from what I believe to be pinwheel brooch elements and reborn here as delicate, but sturdy post earrings. These are solid, thick American made brass, and are becoming quite hard to find these days. The detail here is splendid, with it’s nouveau style curved veining. They are given recycled sterling silver posts, and a dark black-brown patina which I’ve partially removed to make the detail stand out. Both sides are coated with a professional jeweler’s lacquer to help preserve the finish.
Measures approx. 1/2″, 3.81 cm long.
All metal is repurposed vintage brass and recycled sterling silver. Sterling backs included.
Limited edition – only 10 pairs made….5 pairs left, and I’m keeping one for myself!
