Star earrings – Twinkling luminaries stud earrings handcrafted and recycled from a 100 year old silver shilling.
These unique Hairy Growler stud type earrings have fallen straight from the ether into my mind, to my hands and materialised from inside a silver coin?! I recycle a silver shilling to craft these lovely simple but unusual earrings. Asymmetrical in nature the offer an unusual, striking look. The solid star stud is cut from the centre of the shilling star. The smaller star sits facing forward as per normal stud type fitting earrings. The larger outline star sits at 90 degrees sideways and looks fabulous.
For added interest, I add an ‘off-cut’ surrounding coin is included with the earrings. Handmade and completely recycled in Cambridge, UK.
Size : Approx 22 mm * 22 mm & 12mm * 12mm (smaller star)
