alligator scute earrings
Hi friend! This listing is for one pair of hand crafted alligator scute earrings.
Are you looking for a surefire way to easily amplify any look?! Well then, these unique earrings are going to be the perfect addition to your line up. Whether you're at the office, running errands, or enjoying a night out, you can rely on these stunning babes to have you glowing! The best part is, they are made to last, so elevate your jewelry collection with confidence knowing these will be with you for years to come!
I start these beauties by coating the scutes with epoxy to ensure their durability. After letting the epoxy dry I drill a hole at the top of each scute and attach handmade jump rings to hang them from. Next I hand form each layer and the top hanger piece that they will hang from out of 16G brass wire. Once I have all of the brass layers formed I can go ahead and hang them all from the top hanger piece. All that's left to do now is add the 20G earring hooks that I pre-make out of brass or 14K gold filled wire (I'll let you decide) and ta-da another pair of BANGIN babes is born!
They measure 3 1/2 inches long (including the earring hooks) and 1 3/4 inches wide.
To keep your jewelry looking radiant for as long as possible try not to shower, swim, or sleep while wearing it. But no matter how well you treat your new treasures, it is still the nature of brass to tarnish, so all orders will come with an aftercare kit that includes a polishing cloth and polishing pad along with instructions on how to use them, so you can keep your babes shining!
*NO ANIMALS ARE EVER HARMED FOR THE MAKING OF MY JEWELRY*
I love all animals and my jewelry is a symbol of my appreciation for them and the lives they once lived. Most of the bones I use are hand collected by me or my loved ones from animals that are already dead. We find them in the woods, on railroad tracks, at the beach, and many other pockets of nature. The alligator scutes I use are one exception to this, I get them from a friend who found a bucket of them at a taxidermy shop that was going out of business.
