Large African bead earrings. Round. Copper / brass. Sterling silver.
This is a pair of large earrings made from African beads, with sterling silver hooks.
The large beads have been handmade in Ghana. They are made of a brass/copper mix. The small brass beads above and below are also handmade African beads. The wire inside and the hooks are solid sterling silver.
The large beads are 2cm across. The earrings are 4.5 cm long, from the top of the hooks.
I have designed these earrings and put them together 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.
