Canoe Paddle Earrings - One of a Kind
Handmade in Vermont by artist Reed Prescott.
"It was June of 2016 when I started making earrings by repurposing wood items I found at local lawn sales. One of the first items was a canoe paddle I purchased for $3, then proceeded to cut into 200 pair of earrings. At some point the real Vermonter in me rose to the surface as I would cringe realizing the paddle was still functional when I brutally cut it into little pieces. So through a search on the internet, I found these great hand crafted artisan canoe paddles made by the Winnebago Paddle Company in Wisconsin. I contacted them and now purchase scraps that were desinted for the wood stove. These great laminated pieces are wonderful stock for earrings and are the perfect source for my creative mind."
