Handtools, machinery parts, things you find deep in the dark corners of the tack or garden shed. The wear and tear of use and time all tell a story that I am keen to explore. These earrings hang 5cm in length, and are 3cm wide. Each earring weighs 3.9 grams and are made of handpainted steel with sterling silver shepherd hooks. I have included rubber stoppers to help keep earrings in ears and prevent scarves and long hair from stealing them.
Each earring is unique, fronts and backs are often painted differently and are so indicated in the images.
