Micah Adams - Tiny Maple Stud Earrings
These are a pair of stud earrings made from the sterling silver Canadian $0.05 coin and sterling silver backings. They measure approximately 0.3cm x 0.3cm x 0.1cm each. Mostly overshadowed by the iconic beaver design by George Edward Kruger Gray (KG), the Canadian nickel incorporates two tiny maple leaves to the left and right above of the beaver. These are the smallest leaves I have attempted to cut from any coin. They are teeny tiny. Each leaf is carefully hand cut from the coin, then soldered to a sterling silver earring post.
Made in Toronto.
Materials: silver, sterling silver posts.
