Jabebo Red-breasted Nuthatch Earrings
Jabebo Red-breasted Nuthatch Earrings reflect the habitat and capture the beauty of this little bird!
Our Jabebo Red-breasted Nuthatch Earrings are among our favorite designs! Red-breasted Nuthatches are little bundles of energy that prefer the habitat of northern woods. You can find them foraging with Chickadees and Woodpeckers high in the treetops. They will also come to sunflower seed, if you offer that in feeders. Their call has been said to sound like a tin horn, and we agree!
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.
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.
