I created these statement earrings by upcycling some gorgeous screw-back earrings set with Aurora Borealis coated rhinestones. This coating appears in costume jewellery from the mid 1950s onwards. It became very popular because of its ability to reflect light in the colours of the rainbow.
- ethically and sustainably made
- there is only one one pair
- made from vintage screw-back earrings made mid 1950s-60s
- 3.5 cm in length
- suspended on sterling silver hooks
These earrings have been made in my Melbourne workshop with vintage materials which may hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
