These earrings are 2 1/4" long and 5/8" wide. They are also incredibly lightweight. “Desert Warmth” preserves the wood grain and color in simple rectangles. With a clean, splitter crack down the center, “Desert Warmth” is inspired by the aesthetic warmth of desert sandstone.
Unlike traditional metal earrings, these earrings have a wooden pin that goes through your piercing. These earrings will fit in a 'normal' pierced ear; i.e. you do not have to have gauged piercings. However, they are a tiny bit bigger than a metal post, so your ears may be a bit tender the first time you wear them.
NEW!!! Because of feedback I've received, I will also include regular metal posts with these earrings.
The earrings and pins are all natural wood. Each earring is tediously hand-sanded and then I apply two simple ingredients: beeswax and mineral oil. No crazy chemicals, just mineral oil and beeswax to finish them and seal them. After all, these will go in your ears so they contain only natural materials.
Finally, each earring has my signature Nomad "N" burned onto the inside. I put a lot of time and effort into making these and this "N" is my final send off before they become yours.
These earrings are made from recycled wood scraps.
