Original Single Jingle Earrings with Abalone Shell
Original Single Jingle style earring, featuring a Abalone Shell.
This version of our Original Single Jingle style earring features a Abalone Shell.
This style of earring makes a lovely jingle sound. Each earrings has a single cone, with two hanging strands of glass beads that create the jingle melody. The cones are made with nickel-plated or coated light metals, and are extremely lightweight. Note that metals may darken over time. Each earring will measure 3.5" to 4", including the hooks, and weigh 0.2 to 0.3 oz total. Sold by the pair.
Jingles were once metal tobacco lids and other round metal objects that were rolled into a cone shape to then be sewn onto a Jingle dress. We are proud to be exclusively using Native made Jingles by Anishinaabe Bimishimo for our jewelry.
Lluvia who is indigenous to Peru created this original design when she was a cultural arts social worker working with Native American Youth involved in the Foster Care system. In both the original style and the double style, the hanging strands and the two jingles represent Lluvia and the inspiring young Native youth she worked with. All supplies used to make these earrings are from Native American owned businesses.
10% of all proceeds go to support Native American youth that are currently or have been involved in the foster care system.
