Kintsugi ear cuff, uniquely different for 2022
Kintsugi style ear cuff with a great colourful patina. Each ear cuff is handmade and very different. No ear cuff can be duplicated because of the vintage silver used and metalsmithing techniques used.
How to put an ear cuff:
From the top of your ear, slide it down and twist slightly until it sits on the cartilage of your ear. Now it sits perfectly on the ear.
Ear cuffs are easy to wear, no piercing is necessary. .
These are eco-friendly ear cuff earrings because they are made from vintage silver trays.
***NO PIERCING, needed***

What is Kintsugi?
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — a metaphor for embracing your flaws and imperfections. The pottery has a history not to be forgotten.
Years ago I created a Kintsugi style of pottery by smoke firing decorated shards, reconstructing the pots and adding gold in the cracks. It was my signature pottery for many years. I included images of my pots in the pictures.
I've adapted the Kintsugi pottery style to my jewellery creating a Kintsugi Jewellery Collection.
The golden, brass veins on the ear cuff represents the gold used on the cracks of the repaired Kintsugi item.
Priced singly (not in pairs)
The Heirloom Collection is jewellery designed and crafted by Vera. Reuse, Recycle, Reduce are very important to her and therefore she sources vintage silver plated holloware and flatware to make unique jewellery. Other jewellery is made from reclaimed copper, used materials and items. Very little new material is used is Vera's Heirloom Collection.
