The vibrant colors in these earrings are inspired by the fascinating variety of passion flowers. These lightweight 3D fabric earrings are fun to wear. They would be a perfect gift for someone who enjoys shapes and textures inspired by nature. They are shaped like leaves with a central "stem" made of eco-friendly aluminum. I designed the fabrics, which are printed to order in Durham, NC. Ordering small quantities of my custom fabrics reduces waste and pollution while giving me the chance to make something totally unique. The fabric is 100% fine cotton. I bond two layers together to form the sturdy, but flexible, leaf. I also make the packaging by hand and print the information cards that come with the earrings.
The ear wires and jump rings are silver plated. The earrings are 3 inches long from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the leaf. The leaf is 2.25 inches from the top of the stem to the tip and 1 inch wide.
