Music Earrings - Square
These earrings are created by taking bits from vintage hymnal pages, sealing portions of the page to bring out the clef sign and/or notes, gently embedding them into a sterling overlay bezel with a jeweler's grade resin, and then hanging them from a pair of my hand made sterling silver ear wires.
The music portion of the earrings are about 1/2" squares. The earrings will dangle a total about about 1 1/4" from the lobe. These are dainty and light, but not so small that they won't be noticed.
When adding the resin to the vintage paper, the paper reacts by turning darker, warmer, more golden, and a wee bit transparent. Those areas that have been sealed prior to adding the resin remain the natural vintage paper look. This creates a warmth and unique look - each paper turns a different hue and each pair of earrings is unique and wonderful.
Each one of these pairs of earrings is one of a kind, and comes from an actual vintage hymnal - each pair will vary slightly in color. The picture is representational of the pair you will receive, but not the actual pair.
If you are purchasing a hymnal heart or toggle heart necklace or any other piece of hymnal jewelry and would like the earrings to coordinate with that, please just let me know and I will color match.
All of my jewelry is made, one at a time, in my northern Michigan studio using timeless methods of hand crafting with sterling and stone. Your new piece comes packaged in a handmade cloth pouch, suitable for gifting. I hope you truly love your new jewelry!!
Caring for your new jewelry is easy. The best way to care for it, is to wear it!! Jewelry that is worn tarnishes more slowly, so wear and enjoy.
Should you notice a bit of tarnish, you may use a Sunshine Cloth or any other dry polish cloths. Please avoid any pastes or liquids when polishing. If you have a piece with stones, please note that anything liquid or paste may harm the stones or discolor them.
If trying to sanitize, sterling silver jewelry may be wiped gently with alcohol. Avoid rubbing alcohol on the stones - I can't guarantee the results. Please also avoid using bleach on sterling silver, as it will turn black. If it does, a polish with a Sunshine cloth will have it good as new!!
