Two vintage suede jackets provided the recycled leather for these hand cut fringe earrings, which feature raw tangerine quartz crystal points and tiny chunks of faceted citrine wrapped in copper, and handmade Argentium silver hoops. These earrings are long at approximately 5″ but very lightweight.
With just a few wears, the already-soft suede fringe will take on even more shape and character.
No two pairs will ever be alike due to the nature of crystal points. It can sometimes take me an hour to dig through a box of crystal points to find some that are similar enough for a pair of earrings, but I enjoy that process immensely.
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.
