Plastic doll arms have been distressed and pierced with vintage World War II flechettes, wrapped with copper, then blackened with enamel. Blackened gunmetal leverback ear wires. The doll manufacturer has stopped producing the dolls I have taken these arms from, so this pair of earrings are the last ones left.
Flechette: A small, dartlike metal projectile used as shrapnel in antipersonnel bombs and shells. Often flung out of airplanes over enemy lines.
