Cowrie Shell Copper Wire Dangling Earrings. This handmade wire wrapped jewelry is Boho and OOAK like nobody's business! It is said Cowrie Shells are connected to the strength of the ocean and signify Prosperity and Wealth--they were used as currency in Africa and have been used throughout the world. The unique OOAK earrings feature two slightly different earrings to make the pair. I love creating shapes, especially odd-like ones!
The copper is raw and will develop a patina (tarnish) over time. Once the Copper tarnishes,you can submerge them in lemon juice or vinegar and Voila! bright and ready to wear.
The ;ever bacl ear wire is made of surgical steel for those with sensitivities. The hook opens and closes which I LOVE, no losing the backs to the hooks! The earrings are very lightweight and bendable so use care when handling them.
The Cowrie Shell & Copper earrings are approximately 3" L and are for pierced ears.
These bold, unique one of a kind statement earrings are a very serious Conversation Piece.
