Marbled Leather Dangle Earrings
One-of-a-kind intricately marbled dangle earrings, made with reclaimed leather scraps. Featuring gold coloured charms suspended below the leather triangle.
Is it wood? Is it stone? Nope! It's leather! Scandinazn uses a marbling technique to create this layered pattern, so each piece is unique.

CONSTRUCTION / DESIGN * * *
• The triangles are punched out of a single layer of leather scraps
• Scandinazn marbles the scraps of leather in batches. A leather-specific paint is manipulated across the surface of thickened water to achieve this swirly psychedelic pattern.
• Each piece is lovingly assembled by hand from start to finish in Vancouver, Canada.
The Environment: By using recycled leather salvaged from high quality scraps and second-hand clothing, they are giving new life to materials that would otherwise end up in the trash. Leather is long wearing & durable
These items were handmade by Jamie, originally from Kelowna, now living in Vancouver.
In 2012, SCANDINAZN was created, with the intention of exploring elements of Jamie's Japanese & Swedish heritage through experimentation with colour, pattern, shape and texture, using recycled materials where possible. Read Jamie's artist story here.
