Botanist Earrings by foundling

A trio of recycled sterling bezels holds bits of a vintage botanical fabric in green and yellow--preserved under resin and dangled from a post.

The smallest bezel is 3/8" and the largest is 5/8". The earrings hang about 2 1/4". All metal is oxidized sterling silver with a high recycled content.

(Note: This piece is water resistant. It's ok to expose it to an occasional dash through a rainstorm, hand washing or shower. However, repeated exposure to very wet conditions may cause damage.)

Regular retail price $68. Donated by foundling - learn more about this and her other items by visiting her shop!

Bidding starts at $22 - Leave your bids in the comments! Auction closes at 11:59pm Sunday night.
