This 6”x9”, handmade, spalted maple and ebonized (India ink blackened) fir earring holder accomodates up to 20 pair of open wire earrings (French wire, loop, or lever back) for beautiful display and easy selection hanging from polished sixteenth inch dia. brass rods. (Any earrings shown in photos for display purposes only and not included with the holder. Wood grain patterns and shades may vary from those shown in photos.)
This piece is truly unique, because the grain coloration of the spalted maple is never the same between panel cuts. These are stunning small works of wood art that will be cherished for years to come…very special place to store your most cherished earrings. These cost a little more than the other holders because the lumber costs more and there is one extra finishing step (ebonizing the frame) which takes about 10% more time….the result really is worth it! This is the same maple and ebonizing technique I am using in my exclusive 2010 furniture line; I am very proud of these pieces and know they will quickly sell out.
Following the teachings and philosophies of master craftsman Jim Krenov, the hand shaped and smoothed features make each rack unique; there is no “cookie cutter” mass production work here. Each frame features traditional hand-fitted mortise and live-tenon joinery, band sawn veneer panel, and finishes that are hand rubbed. These are the same fine materials, exacting methods and thoughtful techniques that I use to build fine furniture.
I use sustainably-harvested or recycled woods endemic to forests of the Pacific Northwest in these unique pieces. Each piece is made with care and forethought in my small one person shop/art studio overlooking the Marble Mountains of Northern California. Your careful inspection and handling of each piece will reveal my love for this craft and natures gifts to us.
