The pieces are cut from the side of the beer bottle, copper foiled and soldered back together with lead free (silver, copper alloy and tin), solder with a copper stem and surgical steel ear wires. A panel of expert was assembled (Nik of lillyella.etsy.com), to determine the proper dangle and other important tidbits.
A former Sno-Daze finalist and Ingrid Bergman doppleganger from Rosemount High School tried on a pair, and after a rigorous stroll through the neighbordhood--dashing to meet a young couple walking a mottled mini-wiener dog, and much ear scratching, belly rubbing and flipping of aforementioned frankfurter--commented, "I can feel the earrings, but they are totally comfortable." Upon further questioning, she said, "Yes, totally!"
If you're looking for a different type of leaf, or different style of bottle to dangle from yer own--don't be bashful about droppin' me a line to get the process percolatin'!
This may be the next big thing--The Noëlle Line - where nature, glass and metal dance in a different dimension (inspired by the lovely Noelle of xenotees.etsy.com ricocheting through dimensions like there's no tomorrow)--don't be the last person on your block to be a part of the deafening crescendo: order now! and don't forget the subliminals...matching cleavage danglers are sure to be barkin' at their heels!
Each leaf measures 1" x 1 1/2" with a 3/4" copper stem...unfortunately, if you add all the dimensions together you'll be 2" short of a Fellini film...so you'll have to add the subtitles!
