These blue ultrasuede earrings, in my “cherubim” angel wing cut, were cut from a two piece suit I got at an estate sale and are long but lightweight at approximately 5″, with handmade sterling silver hoops, metallic blue freshwater pearls and cute little coconut rounds.
Ultrasuede is not a leather or animal-based material, but is actually a polyester – I am thrilled to be able to reuse and recycle this material into something beautiful since, as a plastic/petroleum-based product, it would not biodegrade in a landfill, at least not for centuries.
They come standard with 1″ Argentium silver hoops (Argentium has a bit more silver content than sterling, and so tarnishes less). I also offer a 14k gold-filled option for those with silver sensitivities. I use a very simple hoop design derived from a pair of “primitive” earrings I was once gifted – it clasps easily and securely through both standard and stretched piercings.
