Nykteris Wing Large Swoop Earrings with Soft Spikes
Materials: Aluminum, Gold, Plastic, Silver, Stainless steel
Made to Order
"Nykteris" is a deliberate misspelling of the genus Nycteris (sorry but the letter K is cooler than the letter C), which is a family of slit-faced bats (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slit-faced_bat). The thin, elongated shapes of the black rubber are reminiscent of bats stretching their wings as they hang from cave roofs or tree branches.
Made carefully layered segments of hand-cut rubber, these eye-catching earrings are inspired by the growth patterns of plants and animals. Each piece is lovingly hand made; as in the natural world, no two are exactly alike.
Rubber over an aluminum armature. They are durable, yet extremely lightweight! Pieces are approximately 4 1/2 inches long. Ear wires in the first photo are are hypoallergenic surgical stainless steel, and unlike silver, will not tarnish. Sterling silver ear wires (modeled in the third photo) are also available upon request.
Pricing is for one pair of earrings.
1. surgical steel hook
2. sterling silver hook
3. sterling silver threadchain
4. gold (by Custom Order request only, pricing may vary--contact for details.)

These earrings are unusual, gorgeous, and well-crafted. I love them. That will be an essential part of my NYE party finery. Ian and Sue-Yee went far beyond expectations to make sure I got my purchase in a speedy manner. Kudos to them for their artistry, organization and kindness!
These are as beautiful in person as they are pictured here. I ordered my pair on a Wednesday and they arrived the next Monday, just in time for an event that week. Because they are handmade, there will be "individuality" to each piece -- but know that they are soft to the touch (not spiky), elegant, and like sculptures for your ears. I am very glad I ordered them and will treasure them for years!
i love these earrings. The details are amazing and the design. Very stylish and funky!
These earrings are BEAUTIFUL. Seriously; these are absolutely genius!!! Thank you so much! :)
