Mother's Day gift for mothers that appreciate eco-green leaves... A lovely shade of green from a reclaimed beer bottle is paired with the simplicity of an elm leaf design from a disease resistant elm tree in my backyard--mixed thoroughly, and arriving at this...voila! Due to the handmade nature of these bierings--plus you never see anything exactly the same in nature anyways--your earrings may have slight variations from the ones pictured here--celebrate the differences with a Celebration Ale--Hooray! The pieces are cut from the side of the beer bottle, copper foiled and soldered back together with lead free (silver, copper alloy and tin), solder with a copper stem and surgical steel ear wires. A panel of expert was assembled (Nik of lillyella.etsy.com), to determine the proper dangle and other important tidbits. A former Sno-Daze finalist from Rosemount High School back in the early 70s tried on a pair, and after a rigorous stroll through the neighbordhood--dashing to meet a young couple walking a mottled mini-wiener dog, and much ear scratching, belly rubbing and flipping of aforementioned frankfurter--commented, "I can feel the earrings, but they are totally comfortable." Upon further questioning, she said, "Yes, totally!" The Noëlle Line (inspired by the cajoling and prodding of xenotees.etsy.com)--where nature, glass and metal dance in a different dimension--jettisoning from fourth to sixth in a single week...don't be the last person on your block to be a part of this urban trend. Order now! and don't forget the subliminals...matching cleavage danglers are sure to be barkin' at their heels!
