Green Basket Reef Earrings

Green Basket Reef Earrings

80.00 138.00

These earrings are made from recycled sterling silver and hand polished pieces of a green fishing basket that traveled a long distance through the ocean. They measure 1 1/4" x 1/2" including the ear wires. The gems are bezel set into the sterling backing. Because of the varying nature of the ocean plastic and due to being hand made, the gems will differ slightly from the photo.

The design for these earrings was inspired by pipe organ coral, tube worms and our coral reefs. With ocean temperatures rising due to global warming, coral reefs are bleaching in great numbers and are on the verge of mass die offs. I hope this design will spark conversations about our coral reefs and the threats posed to them, helping to spark new ideas and change old habits.
