Description

Our Jabebo Red-bellied Woodpecker Earrings – perfectly depict one of our favorite eastern woodpeckers! Bold and beautiful, this woodpecker will come to suet and sunflower seed and peanuts. They nest in cavities in the spring, so it’s always good to leave trees out in the woods that have cavities in them. Their strikingly barred backs and gleaming red caps make them an unforgettable sight – just resist the temptation to call them Red-headed Woodpeckers, a somewhat rarer species that’s mostly black on the back with big white wing patches. Learn the Red-bellied’s rolling call and you’ll notice these birds everywhere.

Made from recycled cereal boxes, these whimsical earrings celebrate the joy of life and nature and are made with an eye to both. Each earring is made to differ slightly from its mate while maintaining a unified theme. Every time you wear them, spotting the differences will be a source of amusement for those around you.

Cereal boxes are generally not recycled, but these earrings offer a way to do so and make something beautiful. Two layers of cereal cardboard are fused together as a base for the intricately detailed images, which are then covered with several layers of a water resistant finish. The end result is an earring that is super light-weight yet durable and able to take some exposure to water. On the back of each, you can still see the colorful patterns of the cereal boxes.

Jabebo Earrings began in 1995 after developing a technique of reproducing small miniature images that can be displayed from earring wires. It quickly became a primary creative outlet as they won praise among scientist and teacher friends. The inspiration for these earrings has come from visiting nature centers, wildlife refuges, parks, gardens, museums and all kinds of other interesting locations.
