This is a short and sweet little post featuring four new pairs of joined earrings (also known as “continuous earrings”, “earclaces” and “necklings”- I’ve been making these for 10+ years and have yet to find a way to properly market them for lack of a better name) which are being sold exclusively at Wilbur Vintage on Fabric Row in Philadelphia. Available in person or on the shop’s Etsy page.
These earrings are surprisingly easy and fun to wear; they’re lighter than they look and give the wearer something to fiddle with, talk about or just enjoy the movement of.
I struggle to find a tag or reference name to go with pieces like this, as bone art is not actually taxidermy. The term “osteopathicraft” was recently suggested to me but it’s a bit of a mouthful so I’m going to go with “Osteocraft” for now. If you can com up with something better, please tell me your ideas in the comments!
First up: Rat Skull filigree earrings joined by black silk fringe:
The skull and fringe are both pleasantly lightweight and easy on the lobes.
I painted a pearlescent paint on the jaw and left a stripe untouched, just for fun:
Thirdly, we have a pair of pearlized grey fox jaw bone earrings with filigree detail joined by white silk fringe:
Last but not least, Pearlized Grey Fox jaw bone earrings joined by a single strand of pearl beaded chain, with added chain and pearl detail:
