puebla earrings

these super funky earrings combine red and turquoise vinyl African trade beads and gold metal to create a truly unique earring that will be sure to draw compliments. super light and 2 1/2" long

African trade beads are hand-made and crafted by African metal smiths who are skilled in forging and fabricating beads and casting metal using the lost wax technique. this has been a large part of the African culture for MANY MANY MANY years and these beads were once traded and used as money. these are over 75 years old and are truly a collector's piece.
