No Stone Animal Themed Earrings from Thailand
First saw these on QVC's website and fell in love with them. I wasn't so much in love with the price so it occurred to me to check out NOVICA and sure enough there they were. The price was more inline with what I was willing to spend even though I had to wait a bit longer to get them. It was definitely worth it.
A problem with smaller stud/button earrings is what I call 'illegibility'. The earrings are too small for the detail and the appeal is lost. These are perfect. The detail is fine without being so tiny that you can't make it out. The proportions are right and they look just like little silver bees without being too accurate and scaring your friends. :) The patina is good, too. They are not so shiny as to look like a cheaper metal, but have a lovely soft shine. I couldn't be more pleased with these and wear them often.
