Black leather earrings "Josephine knot"

They're elegant and refined and could be worn anytime, at various occasions.
 For them I used black leather (1mm/0.039inch diam.) and I made three Josephine knots to give them more elegance, two big "tiger's eyes" (natural),loose beads round brown - faceted (8mm/0.31inch diam) and small four "tiger's eyes" (natural), loose beads round brown - faceted (5mm/0.19inch diam).

The earrings are finished with alloy necklace cord end tips irregular silver plated 3.0mm( 1/8") x 2.4mm( 1/8") and gold plated ear wire hooks.

The length from top to the hook earwire to the bottom of the earring is about 6cm/2.36inch and weight 4gr.

Thank you for your visit.


Handmade Jewelry Care

Even the best-made, highest quality jewelry is delicate. If not handled properly, jewelry will break or become damaged. Handmade jewelry can be extra delicate, so a little extra care will allow it to last a lifetime.

Do not sleep, shower, bathe, swim, do dishes or household cleaning with chemicals. Tap, well, sea, and pool water all contain a variety of chemicals that can result in damage or excessive wear to metals and stones.

Do not exercise when wearing your jewelry. Sweat, tugging, pulling, and rough handling can result in broken links, wire, and thread.

Put your jewelry on after you have applied make-up, hair products, or perfumes. Repeated exposure to the chemicals in beauty products causes your jewelry to lose its sparkle and shine.
