These edgy, awesome dagger style stud earrings are hand stamped with striking mandala patterns and are made using the tines from vintage forks. I am such a magpie when it comes to collecting vintage cutlery and adore hunting for treasures at antique shops & flea markets. I love being able to take something old & unloved and repurpose it into something completely different, giving it a brand new shiny destiny.
Each tine measures approx 5.5cm and is handmade from start to finish. I start by cutting the tines from a vintage fork, carefully sanding down all the edges to that they are all nice and smooth. I then take metal design stamps to create the markings & indentations along each tine.
The tines are then soldered on to Sterling Silver earring posts, pickled, filed and polished. The stamping is then filled with a black, non toxic, waterproof enamel ink to ensure long lasting wear. (However, if you prefer a more subtle look, this of course can be left plain instead. Please add a note at the checkout if you prefer your letters left unfilled). Butterfly/scroll backs also included.
The earrings have a good weight to them and are really nice to wear - day or night!
All items come ready for gift giving in a beautiful branded foil embossed kraft gift box and will be both thoughtfully & carefully packaged.
