Mini cork reads- to err is human to aargh is pirate
(my apologies to Alexander Pope)
Lovingly made with natural whole cork (none of that chopped up, pieced together cork our bulletin boards are made of), ballchain (20") and zinc. It is scientifically dropped into its very own test tube ready for you to 'uncork' it and enjoy its new life out of the test tube!
Cork for necklace is a bit larger than 1" and test tube is 6".
All my pieces come as a necklace, earrings or as a set. Convo me for pieces not shown (you want just a pair of earrings $12.00, set $25.00) etc.
Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree. My cork is grown in managed forests in Portugal and Spain where the bark is carefully harvested, once every nine years, in a centuries-old tradition with hand tools and without fertilizers or pesticides; a process that ensures the forests will remain undamaged!
