Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys Earrings

from 16.00

"Not my circus, not my monkeys."

This Polish saying perfectly sums up that feeling you get when people (co-workers, family members) try to drag you into their crazy world and solve their problems for them.

To create these earrings, I hand stamped the phrase "not my circus" and "not my monkeys" on U.S.-made metal circles that I brushed to give them a subtle texture. The circles are made with a tin-based metal alloy that is heavier than aluminum.

Ear wires: Sterling silver
Sterling silver ear wires are a little more expensive than silver-plated or surgical steel, but they usually work well for people with metal sensitivities. If you choose copper circles, you will get niobium (hypoallergenic) ear wires.

Length: 1 5/8" (4.12 cm)
Earring length is always measured from the top of the ear wire (the part that will be in your ear) to the end of the earring.

Technique: Hand stamped
Hand stamped items uses hand tools (a hammer and steel stamps) to add the letters and numbers one at a time. No lasers or machines! Because of the hand tools, you may notice light hammer marks or a brushed (not smooth) texture on the metal, particularly on the back.

If you would prefer a smooth surface on the back, ask me about creating a wood (not metal) laser engraved piece for you as a custom order.
