Amber glass, eh? these are not the beer-rings that your grandma placed doilies over...

A lovely shade of amber from a discarded and forlorn Two Hearted Ale bottle is paired with the simplicity of an elm leaf design from a disease resistant elm tree in my backyard--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 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'!

The lovely amber lady sporting her own pair is my very own Canadian Art Curator niece Jenny Western (her life was never the same after her Uncle Brian began to feel woozy while babysitting her when she was about three or four and retorted later that, "Uncle Brian is a loud bringer upper!").

Each leaf measures 3/4" x 1 3/8" with a 1/2" copper stem...unfortunately, if you add all the dimensions together you'll be short of a Fellini film...so you'll have to add the subtitles!

Shipping First Class Package and First-Class International Package...if you want it to go Priority, I can send you a revised invoice for the difference.
