Poste Drop Earrings
Or 4 payments of $11.00 NZD More info
Lightweight, the Post Drop Earrings are a contemporary take on a classic ELK shape. Hand crafted from plantation timber, three square shaped beads sit horizontal, held into place via a fine metallic pin. Hand dyed, the wooden pieces get larger toward the bottom creating a pixelated teardrop shape and are held into place via a butterfly backing. Striking in design, these earrings are showcased well against tops and dresses in contrasting colours.
Material & Makers Notes
This piece is 100% handmade. Crafted from sustainable plantation timber it is grown, managed, harvested and replanted by the Go Green organisation under the guidance of the DNER. Each bead and piece is hand cut, shaped, dyed and then polished with a natural wax based product. The beads are strung on waxed cotton cord and the finished piece is extremely light. It is handmade in Cebu, Philippines by a family owned workshop called Earthworks who have collaborated with ELK since 2004.
