Piano Key Scrimshaw Earrings by Jennifer's Vintage
"This piece is made from reclaimed vintage piano keys and has been hand engraved with a one-of-a-kind design using the traditional artform called scrimshaw making it completely unique."
Jennifer of Jennifer's Vintage recycles the keys from old pianos to create whimsical and lovely earrings, necklaces and other accessories. She is careful to source only parts that do not contain ivory.
From the artist:
"I have always been crafty and when I first saw a piece of scrimshaw, I was intrigued. I tried my hand at it and instantly knew I had found what I was meant to do! I have always been fascinated by the ocean, especially tall ships. Scrimshaw is traditional a nautical artform so I began with tall ships then expanding my designs over the years to include lighthouses, mermaids, flowers and so much more!"
