The numbers you receive will be different from the ones pictured here, and will come from books about ANIMALS. Just note if you want SILVER OR BRASS in your notes to seller at check out.

I use a water resistant epoxy, but since one element of these earrings is paper, you should remove them before bathing or swimming.
FYI - your pair will differ from this but for the curious, the 810.9 is a book of American Literary Masters, and the 299.16 from a book on Celtic Folklore. The last photo is of silver versions of these earrings - if you'd prefer a silver metal, check out our other listings!
Don't have pierced ears? I now offer clip on versions of these earrings!
