You know that light as air feeling you get when you first fall in love? It's as if your heart was airborne. These imaginative, one-of-a-kind earrings commemorate that soaring feeling--polished silvery moons were cut from vintage tin baking sheets, then hammered into dapped disks and soldered together with lead-free jeweler's solder. Ornamented with more solder for texture the disks measure about an inch in diameter and look like tiny, crater-filled full moons. Dangling below, miniature balloons crafted from vintage Japanese brass beads and matte metallic Czech glass beads glow with more silvery solder as if they were splashed with moonlight. Matte metallic Czech beads adorn the moon like a tiny spaceship, and one bead stands out on the handmade hypoallergenic niobium ear wires. Overall, the earrings measure about three inches from the top of the wire to the bottom of the balloon. As one-of-a -kind as love itself, they make a perfect gift and will, of course, arrive gift wrapped!
