Reminiscent of budding branches, these lovely olive wood earrings feature a gentle hint of golden or silvery color. Designed and handcrafted in the USA, these earrings feature olive wood from Jordan with accents from Israel. Following hundreds of years of tradition, olive wood beads are hewn from pruned or damaged branches gleaned from olive orchards.
These earrings hang approximately 1.5 inches. The oval olive wood beads measure approximately 10 mm x 13 mm; round beads are approximately 10 mm in diameter. Each pair of earring is individually hand crafted and may differ slightly from pictured item. Color and figuring of the olive wood will vary. Two variations - Golden or Silvery Spring Buds - are available:
Golden Budding Branches. Olive wood earrings accented with brass-plated pewter. Ear wires are natural brass.
Silvery Budding Branches. Olive wood earrings featuring silver-plated pewter. Ear wires are sterling silver.
