A lovely shade of amber from a Moretti La Rossa bottle is paired with the simplicity of an aspen leaf blown into my yard from my next door neighbor's tree--mixed thoroughly, and arriving at this...voila!
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 stainless 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 from Rosemount High School back in the early 70s 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 is very new--The Noëlle Line (inspired by the cajoling and prodding of xenotees.etsy.com)--where nature, glass and metal dance in a different dimension--jettisoning from fourth to sixth in a single week...don't be the last person on your block to be a part of this urban trend. Order now! and don't forget the subliminals...matching cleavage danglers are sure to be barkin' at their heels!
Each leaf measures 1 1/8" x 1 1/8" with a 3/4" copper stem (waltz)...unfortunately, if you add all the dimensions together you'll be short of a Fellini film...so you'll have to add the subtitles! And don't forget, due to the handmade nature of these organic concoctions, slight variations are to be expected and celebrated--Celebration Ales should be at your local licorice store now!
