Jabebo Baltimore Oriole Earrings
Cleverly made from recycled cereal boxes and brilliant colors, Jabebo Baltimore Oriole Earrings!
Our Jabebo Baltimore Oriole earrings capture the male and female perfectly.
The Baltimore Oriole is the common oriole of the east, but their breeding range extends west into the plains, north into Canada and down into the southern states but not all the way to the southern coast. Some do winter in Florida but in Texas they pass through as migrants. Orioles like tall deciduous trees that are spaced apart, not thick forest. Thus they are common in villages and their parks.
Over the last several years, we have seen an uptick in numbers of them, here in CT. They start showing up in April, and love to eat oranges split in half. We sell tons of Oriole Feeders when they show up!
From Jabebo artisans: “Our inspiration for these earrings comes from visiting nature centers, wildlife refuges, parks, gardens, museums and all kinds of other interesting locations. When there is a gift shop it always adds to the experience, especially because the discoveries there can be taken home. They are full of unique and educational items and we knew buying something was helping a good cause in some way. It was a big day for us the first time we took our earrings to a local nature center and they gave us an order for more. That was almost twenty years ago.
Our business began back in the 1990’s when we began playing around with the idea of mismatched earrings and noticed that our school teacher friends, and their students, were drawn to the colorful images and narrative themes. Since then, the process evolved while we invented and discovered equipment that would help us produce more efficiently. The use of cereal box paperboard was one of the first innovations and seemed an obvious choice since we were creating the earrings with paper.”
