4cm in length
Hypoallergenic Titanium earring wire.
Delicate, lightweight and durable inner tube earrings.
Each one is carefully made with hundreds of scissor cuts that replicate real feathers. They are painted with colourful bold lines that contrast the black rubber.
KT TUNSTALL: "I love these earrings and I wear them all the time, they are indestructible. I even sleep with them on tour!"
Every year tens of millions of inner tubes head to landfill in the UK as there is only so many times they can be repaired. In 2011 I started to explore how I could find other uses for my inner tubes that were over-flowing a box under the stairs.
Each inner tube is washed thoroughly before being cut in to shape.
The measurement is the length of the longest part, not including the earring fixing.
Every earring is handmade in our Bristol workshop. Each item comes in a recycled gift box and the story of how the inner tube finally 'popped'.
