Hand crafted key earrings in Bronze and Sterling Silver. Padlock Key Earings. Yin Yan Earrings. Sterling silver hooks. Satin finish in their natural color. Handmade in New Zealand. 1.4 inches long.
Have made this pair asymmetrical, as far a materials go, to make them a bit more funky and Yin Yan.
The story behind these earrings is that my grandfather owned a 5 acre free range chicken farm from 1936 to about 1966, when I was 7 years old, and he had many sheds on his farm that had the old fashioned padlocks that were pure style and quality of construction. Anyhow I have all of the keys he used for these locks and I have this one cast in bronze and silver.
Even at the age of 54 my memories of visiting my grandfather back when I was 7 are a very vivid and a happy time for me. I loved visiting his farm and I share his love for birds and animals. He cared for his birds very much and gave them a good life. He was very much against battery farmed chickens.
He was also a keen breeder of champion chickens and ducks. He won many awards for his birds. His certificates remained in their tubes and he never displayed them. I got one framed and have displayed here for you to see.
He was a wonderful man.
