Hand Stamped Mandala Fork Tine Stud Earrings

Hand Stamped Mandala Fork Tine Stud Earrings

These edgy, awesome dagger style stud earrings are hand stamped with striking mandala patterns and are made using the tines from vintage forks.  I am such a magpie when it comes to collecting vintage cutlery and adore hunting for treasures at antique shops & flea markets. I love being able to take something old & unloved and repurpose it into something completely different, giving it a brand new shiny destiny. 

 

Each tine measures approx 5.5cm and is handmade from start to finish. I start by cutting the tines from a vintage fork, carefully sanding down all the edges to that they are all nice and smooth. I then take metal design stamps to create the markings & indentations along each tine. 

 

The tines are then soldered on to Sterling Silver earring posts, pickled, filed and polished. The stamping is then filled with a black, non toxic, waterproof enamel ink to ensure long lasting wear.  (However, if you prefer a more subtle look, this of course can be left plain instead. Please add a note at the checkout if you prefer your letters left unfilled). Butterfly/scroll backs also included.

 

The earrings have a good weight to them and are really nice to wear - day or night!

 

All items come ready for gift giving in a beautiful branded foil embossed kraft gift box and will be both thoughtfully & carefully packaged.
