"Delicate Beauty"

These carved bone swirl earrings are exquisitely crafted. I am amazed at the percision and symmetry of the 2 earrings. They are large and make a statement, yet they are extremely light. They are much more beautiful in person than pictured. I could not be happier. I am never disappointed in any of the jewelry purchases I have made from the Novica artisens.
