This is a striking pair of African bead earrings .
The large metal beads are handmade brass beads from Ghana in Africa. The red/orange beads are glass and are also handmade in Africa. The tiny brown beads are Tibetan buffalo bone beads. The wire inside, and the ear hooks are solid sterling silver.
From the top of the hooks, these earrings are 3.5 cm long.
I am the designer of these earrings and I have made them with my own hands. I have been making my living exclusively from designing and making jewellery for 9 years. I travel every year to seek out old and tribal silver from Asia and India along with semi-precious stones. Back at home in Brighton, England, I make these loose pieces up into beautiful and unusual jewellery.
Every item will be sent beautifully packaged in a cotton gift bag made especially for me by a women's self help group in India.
