Made using sustainably grown cork leather from Portugal, these lightweight and elegant earrings could be the perfect addition to your earring collection or a gift to a lucky friend.
Three layers of cork leather hang delicately together in a shard diamond design hand cut in my workshop in South Devon. The layers are of different colours and sizes, and will also move independently of each other. Creating an eye catching, eco friendly and original pair of statement dangles.
The earrings are hung on sterling silver kidney wires with a safety catch and connected with strong silver plated jump rings.
Length from top of ear wire 8.5cm
Makes use of small pieces of cork leather scraps that would otherwise be sent to landfill.
CONTRIBUTES TO CO2 ABSORPTION
This cork leather has been harvested from cork oak trees which absorb 3-5 times more CO2 than non-harvested trees.
SUPPORTS SUSTAINABLE FORESTRY
Cork harvesting is an environmentally friendly process during which not a single tree is cut down - the bark renews itself ready for the next harvesting.
