These earrings are made from the ends of matching coffee spoon handles. This is the popular Old Colony pattern which is normally quite heavy but in this case, as the handles are the size of sovenir spoons, are quite light and delicate.
Materials used and Care instructions
The silverware is good quality old silverplate sourced from auctions and estate sales.
The silverware spans many decades of manufacture. There is a potential for nickel content to be exposed in the cut ends of the silverware. If you have a nickel sensitivity you may experience a skin reaction with this product.
The earwires are nickel free hypo-allergenic surgical steel.
Please clean and polish using "kinder" methods like commercial silver polishes and polishing cloths. The use of fast acting dips is not recommended! When not wearing store away from the air (perhaps in a zip lock bag).
