"Earthy and modern"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These earrings are great, they are light, earthy and a beautiful abstraction of birds. The wood is very dark so if you have long dark hair they might not be too showy, but with a pony tail they look fantastic. I absolutely love them.

"Beautiful wood carving, earring broke"

I love these earrings. A little larger than I expected but I can adjust. The hook was bent when I opened the package. I tried to straighten it and it broke. I plan to just replace it myself

They are slightly bigger than I thought, but they are really light and the paintings are precise. Beautiful pair.
