These earrings were created by my husband Jeff in spalted vine maple wood. The dark lines, colors, and designs in these earrings are stunning!

Spalted wood is just amazing, and this spalted maple is really something! Jeff has described the spalting before as "nature's paintbrush" because of the dark lines and designs that look like they've been painted on the wood.

Spalting is wood coloration by fungi, and when woodworkers find spalted wood that has the amazing designs, but is at the happy point before the wood has decomposed away- it's quite a treasure!

Here is what Jeff had to say about them: "I remember when I cut the branch these earrings came from my Mouth dropped open. It was a vine Maple branch I had in my shop for years, it was wonderfully spalted...The first thing that came to my mind when I sanded them down was "Wooden GEMS".... I matched them according to adjacent cuts... These are some very special very beautiful earrrings ..."

I love the shape of these earrings- not only are they such a nice size and shape to wear, but they are also large enough to beautifully showcase this incredible wood. When we are blessed with wood like this, we love being able to share it with the world!

Jeff sands and polishes the earrings so smooth, you'll love the way they feel. All the sanding and polishing also brings out the beauty of the wood, and makes it glow.

Most of our wood earrings are surprisingly lightweight, even with the dense woods. (Our most lightweight earrings are the smaller ones, and ones in red cedar.) These earrings come on sterling silver plated ear wires.



Made for the nature lover, may they bring you joy every time you wear them!



Measurements: Around 1 inch wide (at widest point.) Around 1 & 1/4 inches tall.


Sometimes the spalted wood needs to be stabilized. These earrings have gone through a process to stabilize the spalted wood, more on that below.

Beautiful wood + lots of sanding + natural oil finish + polishing on the buffing wheel + a whole lotta love = some gorgeous and unique jewelry for you to enjoy. With so many fun designs and variations to choose from, we hope you'll find something you'll love!

*These earrings have gone through a process to stabilize the spalted wood. This is a write-up from Jeff about the process to keep the bark on certain woods, which is the same process. A note from Jeff: "A lot of folks like the look of buttons with the bark still on them, but this isn't possible with most woods because the bark will come off right away. So I came up with a method of adhering the bark with a special inert (non-toxic) adhesive that permeates the bark then holds it to the main wood. Any adhesive on the surface of the button is then sanded and polished off. This gives a really nice look especially with Hemlock and Sassafras."
