These gold earrings evoke memories of the shoulder pad-clad, 1990's career woman. Featuring two interlocking shell pieces, they bring subtle statement to even the most minimalist wardrobe.
Given the age of the earrings, it is impossible to know what type of metal the posts are made from. It's for this reason that we include invisible plastic post covers with each pair of vintage earrings sold, ensuring they are safe and hypoallergenic for even the most sensitive of ears.
Since it's inception, Knots and Pipes has repurposed vintage costume jewelry, taking apart pieces that have seen better days and utilizing the hardware and beads in the designs of K&P statement earrings. Through the process of sourcing these vintage materials, we have come across statement earrings in excellent condition, too gorgeous to dismantle. These pieces held their own and had obviously stood the test of time. Introducing Knots and Pipes Vintage Line. A collection of one-of-a-kind statement accessories not designed but sourced by Knots and Pipes.
Adhering to our slow fashion mantra the earrings are refurbished and packaged in our Hamilton, ON studio. Knots and Pipes is an atelier-style studio based in Hamilton, Ontario. Here industrial, recycled and repurposed materials are fused with a deep appreciation, (and talent for) sourcing quality vintage.
A portion of each sale at Knots and Pipes is reinvested into the Women Economic Empowerment Program (W.E.E.P) at Living Positive Kenya. This grassroots organization is based in Ngong Town, Kenya. Here, HIV positive women are provided with a tangible skill and business plan, enabling them to care for their children financially. Because female entrepreneurs make the world go 'round!
