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.

Really cool earrings!

They were a little bit bigger than I realized but they were even lighter than I thought they would be, so really I couldn't be happier!

Clever, but too big for me.

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.

      I should have listened to the reviews. I think a smaller version about half the size would be perfect. I think the necklace would have been more appropriate at this size.

          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!!

          Not what I expected

          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.

          I saw these unique earrings and had to have them. They arrived very quick and were packaged nicely. I wore them the next day and received tons of compliments! One of my favorite fun earrings.

                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!

                  Larger than expected, but unusual and interesting. Great that wheels actually turn.
