Lance Jr. & Sr. stumbled upon the idea of jewelry design after a fire consumed their previous business of laser engraving bats. The bat business never made a full comeback, but they found a creative way to reinvent themselves. While attending weekend craft shows and weeknight street fairs, they had the idea of using the equipment they already owned to make wood laser-cut earrings. In addition to winsome wood accessories, the duo also creates brilliantly designed light switch plates, clocks, and other earthy and artful accents for the home.

    These are the coolest earrings I've ever had. They are super light weight, the gears move and they are environmentally friendly! For the price you pay, they are definitely worth it and I will wear these a lot since I love them so much!!

    Clever, but too big for me.

    By 

    from St. Paul, Minnestoa

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about UncommonGoods Kinetic Gear Earrings:

    I checked the length before ordering, but just didn't realize how wide these earrings would be. Too big for me to wear comfortably. Looked like there was a photo of someone wearing them on the web site, but I couldn't get it to "open"; it was very tiny and "gray" so couldn't really see it. I think the photo would have helped.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Packed very well; arrived in perfect condition.

    Not what I expected

    By 

    from Rhode Island

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about UncommonGoods Kinetic Gear Earrings:

    I purchased the earrings for a friends bday (she's an engineer) ... when I received the earrings they were much bigger than I expected and because of their size a little goofy rather than cool. Also I expected the gears to move cleanly, but they kept getting bound up and did not move smoothly. In the end, I did not give this to my friend as I had hoped.

      Fun, working gears that get lots of comments from fellow Rotarians. A conversation-starter. Lightweight. Great gift for the humanitarian fashionista in your life.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Kinetic Gear Earrings:

          I hoped it would be love at first sight with these earrings, and it was. The design: What's not to like about gears? The length was a bit more that I expected, roughly past the jawline. The quality: The wood is absolutely beautiful. It's so lightweight, you might forget you're wearing earrings. What's special: The hook is smaller than other earrings' hooks, ensuring the earring stays in the ear. Most fun of all, the gears on brass spindles really turn!

            The earrings are lovely; my mother loves them. They are light on the ears and the colors are great.

            The fact that they were made of wood was a surprise (was expecting metal) but still very nice. Love how the gears can turn. My mom was very excited.
