mermaid tail - opal
Made from some recycled supplies found at Urban Source (in Vancouver, BC), the shimmery and iridescent qualities reminded me of fairy wings. This lead me to figuring out how to make that a reality.
Every pair is unique and different with only one out there like them.
Wire wrapped with silver plated copper wire, each pair comes with 18 gauge earring findings. Earrings will come in a blue box and will be shipped in a reused cardboard box or bubble mailer.
I try to be a low impact business (not sustainable) striving to bring joy and create with less of a negative impact on the Earth. However, there is always a contradiction between trying to limit pollution and producing art, consumerism can never be sustainable.
- Many materials I use are only thrifted or recycled including binding thread, fabric, and sometimes paper.
- All new paper and cardstock I buy is 100% recycled (30-100% PC recycled)
- All scraps when making jewelry and books are saved. Some are stored to figure out what to do with other are turned into embeds (from the wings), book marks, stuffing in fabric mushrooms, or bedding for my red wiggler worms.
Even with the intentional thought I put into the impact I make as a business and artist; I am cognizant that there is more that needs to be done to be sustainable. This is a responsibility we share together as members of society, by changing regulations and policies on top of individual choices.

Jewelry will come in a black velvet bag while books will be wrapped in paper. Products will be shipped in a reused cardboard boxes or bubble mailer so your items will arrive in perfect condition. Items are shipped through USPS.
I do NOT offer express shipping or rush orders (shipping is more efficient when they have more time = less environmental impact)
I am a very small business working on limited stock, so returns and exchanges are not always possible. Most of my products are final sale, all returns/exchanges/refunds are negotiated on a case by case basis. Please contact me about your request here.
