Like the first buds of spring, these artful olive wood earrings feature bright hues of gold or silver. 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.
Earrings hang approximately 1-1/8 inches; round olive wood beads measure approximately 10 mm x 13 mm. 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 Spring Buds. Olive wood earrings accented with bright brass. 14K/20 gold-filled ear wires used.
Silvery Spring Buds. Olive wood earrings featuring silver-plated pewter. Ear wires are sterling silver.
