Bone Spike Earrings by Heliotrope
Wear a little piece of the Sonoran desert wherever you go with these hand-carved earrings made of salvaged bone! Crafted right here in Tucson by local artist Heliotrope, each piece of uniquely-carved bone hangs from a sterling silver hook. Lightweight enough for everyday wear, different enough to make a statement, they're the perfect earrings for any occasion!
Earrings measure approx. 4" long.
Spring Winders is the designer, metalsmith and entrepreneur behind Heliotrope. She founded Heliotrope in 2012 shortly after moving to Tucson, where she lives with her partner, poet and DJ Logan Phillips, and their twin daughters.
Spring is hugely inspired by the Sonoran desert. With its wild, survivalist creatures, its strange and beautiful plant life, stunning sunsets, and the incredible contrast between its vulnerability, and eternal strength, it provides both inspiration for her hand-carved casts, and material for the casts and earrings she creates using salvaged animal bones, insect wings, and owl talons.
