Do you still love “snail mail” the way I do? Do you harbor a secret hope of finding a handwritten letter among the bills in your mailbox? Does your imagination take you to faraway and exotic places when you gaze at the tiny works of art that are vintage postage stamps? Then this is for you!

Here is a pair of handmade, one of a kind earrings featuring a real vintage postage stamp preserved under crystal clear glass domes. I use beautiful stamps I have collected from around the globe over many years. Many are engraved rather than printed. All are real miniature artworks with a rich beauty that cannot be fully captured by a digital scan. I’ve hoarded them in my studio, safe in an acid-free box, but it always seemed sad that nobody ever saw them. So this is my way of letting them shine.

The photos show the actual pair of earrings you will receive. No, they don’t match. No two of my earrings can possibly be the same, particularly if the stamps I use have been cancelled. And that’s the best part! The pair you choose for your own will be absolutely unique and genuine.

This pair was made with a single cancelled Canadian stamp featuring a gold-tinged, Art Deco-style Christmas angel. Sophisticated, non-Christmas-y colors to wear all year long. Leverback pendant earring foundation is antique bronze plated brass. Image is 18mm (almost ¾ inch) in diameter and richer in color than the photographs suggest. X

Earrings will arrive on a mini vintage postcard, perfect for gifting and suitable for almost any age. Do you know a philately enthusiast? Do you have a friend who loves Christmas? Or angels? Or both? Or will you keep this angel for yourself?

Keep earrings clean and dry. They must not be worn while swimming, showering, or bathing.
