These earrings are created with 3D resin printed replicas of an “At Rest” Victorian Era coffin screw. The screws were then plated using a process called electroform; depositing pure copper onto items using chemicals and electricity. These earrings are lightweight, though they look heavy. The weight of each earring is equivalent to the weight of a quarter.
The original screw resides in my personal collection. These decorative screws were used during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s to seal the coffins of the deceased.
A darkening patina has been used to bring out the details. Each pair of earrings have hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires, and come with a pair of clear backers for the ear wires.
Your earrings will be beautifully packaged so they are ready to give as a gift or to keep as a treasured adornment for yourself.
- Always remove your jewelry before showering, swimming, or doing any type of strenuous activity.
