Most of our jewelry is hand-made by individual artists, but occasionally a fellow believer in the value of all creatures donates all or part of his or her collection. I have received just such a collection of light-hearted and fun, vintage and retro, costume and better. Over the next few weeks I'll be going through, repairing, cleaning, and listing so that these pieces that have brought so much joy can repeat that process timelessly.
Made of domed natural wood, these earrings have been favorites in the past and will be the same into the future. Simple and unpretentious, but nonetheless a nod to the nature around us. The darkness of the wood is entirely natural, not the result of dyes, so I suspect it is black walnut. Whatever it is, it is rich and deep--and lovely!
