15 mm white coin pearls top these cool Bohemian style Guinea hen feather and red Howlite bullet dangles. The components are strung on a flexible wire and secured with sterling silver and black metal crimp beads. I handmade the argentium silver ear wires. The overall length is 3 1/2 inches.
The earrings are very light weight and well matched.
Howlite beads are carved from an opaque stone that, today, is mined primarily in California. Henry How, a Canadian geologist, is credited with discovering howlite in Nova Scotia in 1868. Howlite's properties allow it to be carved and molded into beads or other jewelry components.
Some people believe howlite has a calming effect and that wearing the beads will reduce anxiety and tension.
