Where did you get those earrings? That will be the question you will be answering if you should be the one wearing these earrings!
I have used handmade Venetian glass beads with a white center (heart) and a transparent Peridot green outer layer and capped them with cadmium and lead-free USA made brass-plated Pewter flowered bead caps on either end. These green lampwork beads from the city of Murano, in Venice, Italy are not perfect because they are individually handmade. From these capped beads hang two bronze charms, made by Hawaii based artisan Candice Wakumoto. One earring has a flower bud (shorter) charm and the other a small leaf (longer) charm. These charms are beautifully detailed hand cast and lovingly made, making these earrings certainly one-of-a-kind! The earrings dangle from round 14K gold-fill earwires.
Length: Asymmetrical 2.13 and 2.38 inches from your piercing.
Bead size: 10 mm Venetian bead: 16 mm leaf charm; 12 mm flower bud
14K Gold-Filled (14K GF) beads are made by bonding a layer of 14K gold with high pressure and heat to base metal and then shaped as desired. Industry standard requires that the quantity of gold be at least 1/20th of the total weight and the Karat measurement must be marked.
Care: Clean with soft fabric, or non-abrasive polishing cloth. Avoid direct contact with perfumes, hairspray, and deodorants. Jewelry should be worn after application of cosmetics. Store wrapped in soft fabric or sealed in plastic bag.
