Description:

These one of a kind wooden earrings are crafted entirely from the smallest of wood scraps; White Oak surrounds an arc of Black Walnut settling behind a band of Mahogany atop a sliver of Figured Maple. The Koa that completely covers the backs also provide the slightest band wrapping around the sides. The four hand beveled edges of the nearly square shape arc slightly to intersect at a slight radius. The 14-karat Gold plated posts are mounted in the center of the back side; the backs are plated in 14kt gold as well.


Dimensions:

These Nickel size handmade posts measure 13/16” x 13/16” square at the widest points and a mere 1/8” thick; (20.6mm x 20.6mm x 3.5mm). for reference, a U.S. Nickel measures 13/16” across; and is slightly more than half the thickness of these beautiful post earrings.
Earrings DO NOT CONTAIN NICKLE.

Finish:

These lightweight posts are finished by soaking in deeply penetrating clear Danish oil, hand polished and topped with a several coats of hand rubbed clear lacquer; and finished off with a few coats of high quality paste wax; hand buffed for a lustrous glow. As with ALL of my creations, there were no stains, paints, pigments or dyes used; as a result they will not fade, as the years go by they will develop a rich patina all their own.


Eco Friendly:

ALL of the jewelry pieces that I create are made from upcycled wood in one form or another; scraps, salvaged; discarded furniture; and anything else I can rescue. I save my scraps from larger items, scraps from local shops and suppliers; I’ll pick it up off the side of the road or pull it out of a dumpster. Thrift stores and yard sales are a great place to find broken or incomplete items made of wood. I have; and still do use trimmings from my trees, other peoples trees; and even dead trees. I incorporate various salvaged metals, findings and wires in many of my items when suitable. The various finishes that I apply are low VOC; and I achieve a transfer rate 90% or more.


Craftsmanship:

Each and every item I create is created one at a time; and all are as much a piece of art as they are jewelry. The surfaces and edge details are all formed by hand without the use of templates, automation or routers. Every piece that I create is meticulously hand sanded, finished and polished; not hand held while a machine does the work. The fitment of the various components is meticulous and precise. The wire eyelets are fit into tiny holes, usually a minimum of 7/16” deep; drilled into each wooden item with a hand powered drill for the precision unattainable with a power drill.


Quality:

The posts are mounted with a two part epoxy resin; and they simply will not come loose or pull out; I’ve tried. I purchase my findings at a few local, independent small businesses that focus on quality; and their reputation rides on it. The quality and value found in my exclusive designs are unmatched; their beauty beyond what any computer monitor can display, I guarantee it*. I have been making wooden jewelry for about 25 years now; I am absolutely certain that with you will enjoy your jewelry for many, many years to come.
