I handcrafted this pair of earrings from walnut wood, i used a semi-gloss finish and added a black color. This wood was a "throw away" piece that i saved and recycled and hopefully will be used for some more years. All my items are handcrafted in my small shop in beautiful california i don't use duplicators and therefore every item is unique. Im always looking for wood that people don't have any use for , and turn it into a beautiful useful item. If you have any questions please let me know , ill be glad to answer your inquiries. Don't forget to check out my shop for more wood jewelry / pens / bookends / among other items that i have made. Thank you.
