Worn by the Fulani women of Mali, these earrings are either passed down through generations or given as a gift from husband to wife. The metal is repeatedly heated and hammered into thin blades and then twisted into shape.
Brass with a silver or gold leaf wash.
Medium Silver - 2" x 2.25"
Small Gold - 1.25" x 1"
Because each pair is handmade, no two pairs will be the same. The ear wire is soldered onto the earring body without a hinge. The wire must be pushed delicately into place from the side.
This is a fair trade, handmade item from Mali.
