Handcrafted by South African artisans, these brass earrings are layers of brass. The bottom layer of darkened brass peeks through an opening in a brilliant brass rectangle. The color on the brass is achieved by applying high heat rather than paints or dyes. The earrings hang 1 inch from brass hooks.
The earrings are free from lead & nickel or any other allergy producing substances. Sprayed with a clear lacquer, the piece requires only a soft cloth for polishing. Once the lacquer wears off, which can take several years depending on the amount of wear, a household metal polish can be used.
