Abstract Lithograph Half Circle & Bead Earrings

Regular price $20.00

These earrings are made from half discs I cut out of vintage tin lithograph scraps & beads from a broken necklace.  Lithography is a method of printing that dates back to the 1790s.  During the early & mid-20th century, lithography was used to produce brightly colored tin that was used in toys, TV trays, lunch boxes, candy containers, doll houses & other items.  The earrings measure 1.75” from the base of the earring wires, which are silvertone.
