These fun little earrings are made with neat-o (at least I think so!) recycled tire rubber "porcupine" beads in black with white spikes. Super lightweight and not at all sharp (the rubber is soft to the touch). Beads are about 12mm and are hand-wired with black enameled copper. Earrings hang about an inch and 1/4 and are finished with simple surgical steel earwires.
