Demarest and Englesold out!
4.5 x 0.75 cm
Oxidized Sterling Silver, bronze with patina
The linked boxes take the names of two streets intersecting: the exact location of two traffic control boxes. These earrings mimic their weathering patterns.
When worn, the top piece reveals itself as hollow, while the bottom's orientation is reversed, appearing solid from the front. The oxidization and patina are sealed with wax; however, please avoid water and handle carefully. They may change with wear.
