Earring height: 1.5cm (+ 2.5cm for hook height).
TECHNIQUE & FINDINGS
To make the earrings I used a technique called needle felting (dry felting).
It is a time-consuming technique, but it does not require the use of detergents, and the alpaca fleece retains its natural character. Even after felting, the balls are still very soft!
I also value needle felting for the possibility of obtaining flexible and yet durable shapes.
The findings are made of surgical stainless steel (316L).
Surgical stainless steel has a hypoallergic formula. Surgical steel is not the same as alpaca or cheap metal. Unlike silver or gold, it does not require maintenance, cleaning and care, so you can enjoy its beauty and gloss without much effort. The surface is resistant to oxidation and corrosion. The components don’t start to smell or tarnish after time.
The earrings will arrive in one of my pouches. All the materials I use for packaging are environmentally friendly and recycled, from the acid-free tissue paper to the unbleached postal box it arrives in.
