Been diggin in my box of treasures again, and today I offer up these two wonderful pairs of Dayak ear weights. These are both perfect, wearable pairs! You can find the HERE!
Well I am sorta settled in, still settin up shop and sorting through many many projects I need to finish……MANY – bamboo ear plugs, various forms of antler jewelry, copper and brass earrings and wooden runes just to name a few…..
So here I present a brand new idea – neck pieces made with old/vintage Kuchi earrings. I obsessively collected all sorts of antique and vintage ear jewelry from all over the world hoping to open up a little museum. I have decided that is not in the cards for me so I am indeed selling most of it, and making stuff with some of it. I have a large amount of these Kuchi earrings that hail from Afghanistan and Pakistan, mostly singles. Each one, even within pairs are quite unique and have many interesting features and tiny details. I especially am drawn in by the colored glass inlays. I managed to match some old and new glass trade beads as well as other components to complete these intense necklaces. They are just the beginning of what is to come in the near future as I have a pile of these earrings to plow through. You can find the HERE!
