Hand carved Surfite finished with Sterling Silver ear wire
These mini lifebuoy earrings are hand carved from surplus resin. Produced during the manufacture of surfboards in Scotland by Jason Burnett of @jaysurfboards. Each pair is totally unique as the colour layers build up randomly. To find out more about the process of repurposing the Surfite head of to the ‘Story of Surfite’ to find out more.
The resin discs have been hand carved so that they taper to a thin edge on the outside and a chunky middle to add dimension to the shapes as well as making them super lightweight. Tiny Sterling Silver tubes have been inserted into the holes where the ear wires hang to add strength and detail. Whilst the contemporary style ear wires have long hooks at the back to help stop the earrings being knocked out.
The Lifebuoy design was inspired by my feelings during the Covid-19 lockdown and the need to bring colour and cheer into our lives whilst also recognising that its ok to reach out and ask for help. So ‘Be brave and Make Waves’.

Care Instructions: When the earrings need a clean use hot soapy water and a soft bristle brush (e.g. Toothbrush). A soft polishing cloth can also be used. As with all Silver jewellery keep them away from perfume, sunscreen and other solvents. Where possible keep the earrings in their box to help reduce tarnishing and scratching of the resin when not being worn.
