These special earrings are finished with niobium findings. Why niobium? It is as hypoallergenic as pure gold and non tarnish! I have sensitive ears and only wear niobium earrings now with no irritation. I love it! If you prefer these earrings with gold/silver plated findings let me know and I'll adjust the listing for you for $3.5 less.
The great thing about paper quilled earrings is that they are lightweight! So even though these are large earrings they are as light as a feather! No sagging earlobes with these earrings!
They are carefully hand varnished in several layers for a sturdy, water resistant finish. While they are very water resistant, due to their open construction they are more delicate than many of my other earrings. Just treat them as you would any fine jewelry by placing them in a safe place when not using them and they will last as long as any other jewelry.
Each earring measures 7/8" (2.2cm) wide at the base and are 1 3/4" (4.2cm) tall not including the earwires or jump rings.
Quilled earrings are super light-weight, gorgeous, delicate in appearance, yet can last as long as other jewelry thanks to the water resistant coating.
Like the design, but not the color? Simply purchase this listing and let me know in the notes what color(s) you would like and I'll make a special order just for you! This is a one of a kind design and cannot be replicated exactly, but I can do a similar style.
This pair of earrings, like all my jewelry, comes packed safely in a pretty gift box. If you order multiple items, I may pack in fewer boxes than there are items, unless you request otherwise.

Care Instructions: Care for your paper quilled jewelry as you would any fine jewelry. Keep it safe in a jewelry box or on an earring stand when not in use. They are water resistant, so rain won't hurt them. If they get wet, simply dab with a tissue. If they get very wet, dab with a tissue and lay out to dry. Do not wear while bathing or swimming.
