This is a pair of French clip earrings in an antique bronze finish and features a 1969 6¢ United States stamp called "Plant For More Beautiful Streets" from the beautification of America series. The Stamp depicts a highway surrounded by lush meadows.

These stamps publicized First Lady Lady Bird Johnson's personal program for the Beautification of America. Its goal was to encourage Americans to take pride in their country and plant flowers and trees.

The images were taken from real, used, vintage postage stamps to make an asymmetrical pair of earrings and may have post office cancellation marks.

Size of earring is 18mm and they are lead and nickel free.

Earrings are water resistant but not waterproof. The artist recommends removing before showering, bathing, or swimming.

Each of these items is different. The images shown are sample photos and do not show the exact item you are purchasing. Because each is handmade using upcycled materials, you should understand that the product you receive will vary in appearance.

About Postage Stamp Jewelry

Erica Everett is a Hudson Valley artist. After discovering a box of stamps at a yard sale years ago, she began to make jewelry, breathing new life into those beautiful little squares of paper that have traveled to and from many places across the globe.

Since then she's been finding and peeling stamps off of the backs of letters sent between lovers, friends, spies, and everything in between. She has fallen in love with exploring how they have made their way to New York. She's drawn to nostalgic American images, strong female figures, beautiful florals, architectural details, and all things curious and whimsical when thumbing through stamps.

Each piece of jewelry is one-of-a-kind and handmade from a vintage, cancelled postage stamp, and your wearing will add miles to its travels!
