Upcycled Bamboo Coral Chunky Red Statement Earrings & Necklace Set
The Materials:All significant parts of this necklace and earring set have been upcycled from discarded jewelry. The red bamboo coral was rescued from a large secondhand gemstone necklace, and the diamond-shaped metal pendants were repurposed from a vintage earring. The necklace chain, earring hooks, and connecting wires are new.
Chunky lipstick-red nuggets of upcycled bamboo coral hang on silver-plated wire in bold statement earrings. One side of the earrings shows white sunburst inclusions, while the other side has black inclusions. (All photos are of the same earrings.) The coral beads have soft facets cut into them. The coral nuggets are 1 inch long and a half inch thick, and the entire earring hangs 2 inches from the top of the ear wire. The earrings are a bit weighty, given the size of the coral nuggets.
Repurposed metal earring components and bamboo coral are upcycled into a matching lariat necklace. Only the chain and connecting wires are new. The larger metal diamond is one-sided (see photos). The necklace chain measures 24 inches, and the lariat pendant hangs an additional 5.5 inches from the chain.
