TECHNIQUE & FINDINGS
The earrings have been crafted from hand-dyed and then hand-wet-felted alpaca fleece.
The fleece colours have been achieved through a combination of traditional acid dyeing techniques, as well as innovative experiments with both natural dyes and dyes commonly used in the food industry.
During the wet felting process, I used environmentally-friendly soap.
Each piece is made using a stainless steel base.
– British alpaca fleece
– stainless steel
Surgical-grade stainless steel differs from alpaca or cheap metals in that it has a hypoallergenic formula. As opposed to silver or gold, it doesn’t need any maintenance, cleaning or special care, making it effortless to enjoy its beauty and gloss. Moreover, the surface is highly resistant to oxidation and corrosion, and the components do not develop unpleasant odours or tarnish over time.
The item will be delivered in one of my pouches, with all packaging materials being eco-friendly and recycled, including the acid-free tissue paper and unbleached postal box.
