Vintage Brass and Paper 'Matchstick' Earrings

Vintage Brass and Paper 'Matchstick' Earrings


These beautiful earrings are made from recycled waste paper which is pulped, compressed and coloured. The brass elements are upcycled from a discarded piece of antique curtain pole which is handshaped and buffed; discoloration and small scratches and indentations are part of the look. The earring hooks are recycled silver. Being handmade each pair of earrings is entirely unique and sizes do vary (please see the photo for an approximate size). They are solid but super light and comfortable to wear. 


If a colour is currently out of stock I’ll be making another and it will be listed shortly however it will be available to preorder. Please note the patterns in the brass will vary from those pictured when preordered. Note there are currently two blue options as the pattern in the brass of one is very distinctive.


*I aim to post out all orders within one business day, however please allow an extra day for preorder pieces.


The earrings will come in a recycled box.


The paper elements have been sealed to protect them from everyday wear,  however it is best that they are not exposed to excessive moisture and are removed before showering and sleeping. Please be gentle.


Due to different colour profiles from device to device, the colours of the actual product may vary slightly from what you see on your screen. Every attempt has been made to represent the colours and designs in the most realistic way.
