These unique, up-cycled Kowhai design and tassel earrings are hand made from bicycle tyre inner tubes by Ronja Schipper. The discarded inner tube is cleaned, polished, created and then attached to brass coloured surgical steel looped hooks.
A perfect environmentally friendly accessory to wear when you want to make a difference in the world.
Ronja is a graphic designer, illustrator and compulsive maker of things. She is particularly passionate about re-purposing discarded items and materials, and turning them into meaningful objects of desire. Ronja feels it absolutely necessary to look at the way we manage our limited resources and the pressure our consumer behaviour is placing on our unique planet so by using mostly waste material to create her products, she’s making her contribution towards a change for the better.
