These tiny teardrop studs are cut from pale pink and bright pink/gold fabric and printed in blue glitter and silver mirrored vinyl.
The teardrop shaped components are cut out by hand then machine stitched into place.
Elements in every pair of my colourful earrings are made from recycled fabric or textile off cuts, allowing me to ensure no precious fabric goes to waste. This pale pink fabric was once a kimono, passed to me from my Granny and worn until it fell apart. The remaining fabric lives on in my textile jewellery.
The stud backs are made from hypoallergenic surgical steel, making them a good choice for anyone with sensitive ears or a nickel allergy.
Each teardrop measures a delicate (for me!) 3 cm x 2.5 cm.
