These stunning earrings combine hand collected hollowed out .22 caliber brass bullet shells with hand trimmed porcupine quills. Each grouping of quills is hand sorted and trimmed for balance and symmetry. Nestled in an up-cycled bullet shell, these earrings are simple yet stunning for a modern bohemian feel.
Due to the handmade nature of each piece, items may vary slightly from those shown. The individuality of each piece is what makes each item special and unique. Please note that the colors and shapes of the stones and metals may vary slightly from one pair to another, and that colors and finishes may appear slightly different on your computer monitor.
Length is approximately 2 3/4″ measured from the top of the earring wire.
Caring for your Artisan Jewelry:
Please be mindful that porcupine quills are very delicate and can be easily crushed if not cared for properly. I advise against wearing your jewelry to bed as the delicate wire pieces may become misshapen. It is also a good idea to avoid swimming in or bathing in your jewelry as this may speed up the natural patina process.
Clean your Sage & Stone pieces with warm water, a soft bristled brush and an ammonia and phosphate free dishwashing soap. Be sure to rinse throughly and never fully submerge your porcupine quill earrings in water. Gently pat dry. Avoid contact with household cleaners, perfumes and hair spray as these abrasive mixtures will tarnish the metals as well as degrade the porcupine quills.
