Introducing the Maltagliati Earrings, named after a type of pasta. Maltagliati means "badly cut" in Italian, and refers to a type of pasta that's made of a bunch of irregularly cut pieces, leftover from other batches. These earrings are hand cut and the size of each piece varies slightly from batch to batch.

 

The jagged edges of this design remind me of lines cut with a fluted pasta wheel - something I grew. up using more as a toy than a cooking utensil.

 

We're calling this iridescent silver leather "Space Leather". It's DAZZLING when it picks up a ray of direct sunlight. It transforms from metallic silver to prismatic rainbow. Flip through the carousel to see it behaving in different types of light  

 

FEATURES * * *

• Made from lightweight leather, salvaged from second hand clothing
• Surgical Stainless Steel Hoops, compatible with most sensitive ears

 

CONSTRUCTION / DESIGN * * *

• After cutting, the leather is hand painted, using a high quality leather paint (which is both flexible and waterproof, hurrah!)
• Each piece is lovingly assembled by hand, from start to finish. 
• All of our pieces are crafted in our studio in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.


RECYCLED LEATHER / WHY DO WE USE IT? * * *

• We're passionate about sustainability. By using recycled leather (salvaged from scraps and second-hand clothing) we are celebrating materials that would otherwise end up in the trash.
• Leather is a rewarding material to work with. It's long wearing & durable. The second-hand leather we use is still in good condition, and retains its quality.
• It's also about challenging ourselves! One of our biggest goals is to use leather in a way you don't expect to see it, masquerading as something entirely different.

 

CARING FOR LEATHER JEWELRY ** * 

• Avoid getting your jewelry too wet, although a bit of water (getting caught in the rain or wet hair) should be ok. 
• Use care when removing and storing jewelry 
• It's best to store long pieces hanging, or laying flat. Avoid storing other objects on top of your leather jewelry.

When taken care of properly, leather jewelry can have a long, happy life!
