Recycled Tin Mini Dress Earrings

Are these not the most cunning little earrings you've ever seen? Etsy seller Shixie makes these earrings, as well as other jewelry and non-jewelry items, out of recycled tin, making these earrings a lovely (and eco-friendly!) gift for Mother's Day or any other occasion.

Personally, I love the little dress hangers that emerge seamlessly from the earring wire itself. There are several different colors and patterns to choose from, and since they're handmade, each pair is unique. I love that they're feminine but simple, instead of being too frilly. And at $26 a pair, they're priced very reasonably. The size/length of the pairs vary slightly, but are generally around an inch and a half long, or slightly longer. The wires are sterling silver, and in some cases are oxidized to match a darker dress "fabric".

What: Recycled Tin Mini Dress Earrings
