Industrial earring with an exposed screw.

Inspired by industrial pipe clamps, The Clamp Series by Drilling Lab is a collection of jewelry that celebrates the industrial aesthetics of factories and machining processes. 

The designs are manufactured in traditional Taiwanese factories, so the inspiration for the pieces actually comes from the places in which they're made.

The earring is made out of stainless steel, and features an exposed screw.
