I have upcycled vintage 1950s screw-back earrings to make these lovely hook earrings. Originally purchased by a woman who travelled with the US Army in Korea and Occupied Japan, they are of beautiful quality. I believe the green stone to be Jade.
I have added a scrolled connector made in the USA on vintage equipment and 14K Gold Filled hooks. These earrings measure approximately 4.3 cm from the top of the hook to the base of the drop.
Sustainably made, these earrings contain vintage and repurposed materials which hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
Handmade in Australia.
