These whimsical earrings feature thorns from the native Palo Borracho tree that lives just outside my studio here in Argentina.

After choosing thorns of very similar size, I file the base of them down in order to get the angle I want, then smooth the tip so they aren't dangerously sharp, then I custom make each a fine silver bezel with a sterling silver backing and post. Each set comes with extra large handmade sterling silver earnuts (backs). The size of the back corresponds to the size of the earring. I oxidize and selectively polish the earrings to show the texture of the setting, but they can be ordered totally shiny if you prefer.

The pair shown in the photographs is about 1/2 inch across, and stick out nearly an inch. Choose your size! From baby size (1/4 inch long) to big momma size, each comes ready to gift in a handmade bag.
