I create jewelry from the discarded cans found along the migrant trails. High in protein, non-perishable and inexpensive, tuna is carried by thousands of migrants crossing the Arizona desert. As a Samaritan, I walk the trails looking for those lost or left behind, and I often find these cans. Part of a can is used as an element in my earrings. The earrings are all unique and may not be these exact pairs.
The ear wires are hypoallergenic; the coloring is created with a torch fired enamel process.
Earrings cost $23.00 including postage. To order please contact me:
The profits from this project go to support the work of Samaritans.
