This long, single earring features hand-cut strips of rich, reddish dark-brown leather, wire-wrapped with non-tarnish, artists' quality wire, and accented by a shark tooth that used to be a pendant.

The tooth is wrapped with copper based, silver-coloured wire that shows signs of age: the copper is starting to peek through where the silver colouring has worn away. The five soft, thin leather strips were cut from old leather scraps that would have been thrown away. They vary in length and are cut slightly unevenly, which adds to the rustic, primitive look of the earring. This long leather tassel hangs from an antiqued-brass coloured ear-hook that is without nickel.

This leather and shark tooth earring is lightweight, and measures just over 18cm from top to bottom. The shark tooth is 20mm wide and 24mm long, not including the wire-wrapping.

Leather is pliable and can be creased. Storing this earring hanging will help the leather strips to keep their shape.
