These are cleverly made! Wire-strung, the central piece in each earring is a large molded bicone-type plastic bead, in a nice shade of orange. Surrounding the bead, on 4 sides, are smaller, shimmering orange plastic irregular oval beads, each with a double-goldtone bead cap, large enough to cover most of the bead. The foundation of each earring is a flat filigree disk, to which is riveted the earring clip mechanism. 1" across; very good condition (one filigree back is slightly curved; does not affect wearability).
