Piano Keyboard Ivory Earrings
Piano keyboard ivory earrings. This piece is made of recycled ivory from old pianos with the black keys made of recycled ebony wood. Surgical steel posts. Each piece will be a little different and may show variations in color in the ivory.
This jewelry is made from antique piano keys and is 100% recycled ivory from the 1880s – 1920s. The use of recycled (piano key) ivory is not to be misinterpreted as a lack of concern or support for endangered species. It is done, instead, in the hope that people will learn to recycle our natural resources. The plight of the African elephant is a serious concern to artist Jay Jackson. He gives a portion of sales of his piano jewelry to the African Wildlife Fund for the protection of the remaining elephants.
