The Hummingbird earrings is a beautiful meeting between oxidized silver and upcycled skin where the two materials highlight each other. The poetic name tells about the ease of expression, inspired by the tiny hummingbird.
Upcycling is a kind of recycling. The high-quality soft skin is a debris – from the production of shoe insoles.
The design was inspired by the elegance and ease of the hummingbird. The skin quality and the limitations set by the variation of the skin sizes have both inspired Karina Hunn – and have been decisive for the final size of the earrings.
The Hummingbird earrings are a part of a series of three, all made by upcycled skin.
