Vegan Repurposed Vintage Ultrasuede Feather Earrings with Purple Jade
These vegan ultrasuede earrings are purple and teal, with purple jade. The lady who eventually passed along these ultrasuede garments to me was an "I'AMer", a believer in ascended masters and devotee of Saint Germain, perhaps the most well-known of those masters. They were (are) highly fond of wearing pastels and purples and are still fairly prominent here in Mount Shasta, California, where Saint Germain purportedly made appearances to people. I felt called to stick with the theme, so here they are with purple jade.
Any of my earrings designated as "vegan" mean that they are made from non-leather materials (ultrasuede is actually a polyester), and additionally, they will not include any bone, shell, horn or other animal-derived materials either. I ONLY used repurposed ultrasuede, and am thrilled to be able to reuse and recycle this material into something beautiful since, as a plastic/petroleum-based product, it would not biodegrade in a landfill, at least not for centuries.
They come standard with 1″ Argentium silver hoops (Argentium has a bit more silver content than sterling, and so tarnishes less). I also offer a 14k gold-filled option for those with silver sensitivities. I use a very simple hoop design derived from a pair of “primitive” earrings I was once gifted – it clasps easily and securely through both standard and stretched piercings.
