These colorful earrings are made from vintage matchsticks dating between the 1920's-1950's. Also called "feature" matches, tiny works of art were printed across the matches from flowers to landscapes to ladies. (See the other listings in this category for many other image choices!)

The earrings are about two and a half inches long and are topped with coordinating beads, often recycled from other jewelry pieces. The jump rings and ear hooks have an antique gold finish to add to the vintage feel of the earrings. Matchsticks are coated with a strong clear coating to protect and strengthen the material.

All jewelry is handmade by me and uses pieces and parts recycled from found jewelry and interesting objects. Your one-of-a-kind wearable art will ship to you safely in a gift box!
