I made these whimsical earrings from vintage postage stamps. I loved collecting stamps when I was little, and I ended up with several related to American history, and now these postage stamps, something which were originally a practical item, have become wearable art!

These earrings would be a perfect gift for a history buff or teacher. The last photo shows the stamps I used before I converted them to earrings, which include the Jefferson memorial, American flags, and Independence Hall.

The details: These earrings...
- measure 2 ½ inches (6.4 cm) long
- are made with actual US postage stamps
- hang on nickel free fishhook style earwires

I coated the stamps in a glossy coat, which gives them a sheen as well as giving them added protection. These earrings are still delicate, however, so avoid sleeping or swimming in these earrings.
