These handmade earrings are inspired by the desert and cast from actual skeletons of Prickly Pear cacti (skeleton closeup shown). Using the lost wax casting process, each piece starts with a carefully selected section of Prickly Pear skeleton, which is then hand cast using recycled sterling silver. The cast piece is then framed with sterling silver wire and dangles from sterling silver earwires.
The circles measure 7/8″ in diameter and dangle just over 1.25″ from the top of the earwire. Available in sterling silver and gold vermeil (gold plated sterling silver).
Materials: Sterling Silver
Method: Lost Wax Casting
Finish: Polished Silver (Shiny) or Gold Vermeil (Shiny or Matte)
Timing: Silver ships in 3 - 5 days; Vermeil ships in 2 - 3 weeks
