These earrings are handmade from recycled wine corks. These are hand-gilded with imitation gold leaf. They are approximately 1/4" thick and vary between 1.5" and 2.25" long depending on your choice of ear wires. The corks are chosen carefully to match in color and size but each varies in characteristics. Therefore, the earrings you receive may vary slightly from the earrings pictured. Enjoy this super lightweight, adorable fashion dressed up or dressed down!
