Surfboard resin and glass beads with gold plated on brass ear wire. Hangs about 1.5"
Leighton started his journey making jewelry in 1979. His very first jewelry collection titled 'Ear Art' was made with surfboard resin. This piece, along with every one in the collection, is one of a kind, made between 1979 and 1989.
These pieces are all over 30 years old. They are made with resin so are very durable and are true vintage. Leighton is considered the pioneer in surfboard resin jewelry. Always surfing, Leighton started making surfboards as a teenager. This later evolved to art and jewelry using the resin medium.
