These dainty earrings are the perfect choice for someone who likes to wear smaller pieces of jewelry or possibly someone who works in a profession whose work has a modest dress code with regard to jewelry. But what these little darlings lack in size they more than make up for in style! The clay bead is made with the ancient Japanese metal working technique called mokume gane which makes the colors of the clay swirl together beautifully. All of the findings on this piece are gold which coordinates very well with the deep dramatic colors of the clay as well as the copper leaf in the bead. The earring hangs from an ear wire which is lead and nickel free and hypoallergenic. The total length of the earring is 1 1/2 inches, the width is 3/8 inch, and the weight is less than 0.1 oz.
