I have created these great, lightweight Cree Metis earrings from birch bark collected from my own property. It has been sustainably harvested from bark that is naturally being shed from trees that have been downed during wind or lightning storms.
The ear wires are hypoallergenic stainless steel that has been silver plated. They are completely lead, zinc, nickel and chrome free so that even those of us with very sensitive ears can wear them.
The beads are "faux turquoise" and are made of resin in the shape of leaves for a fresh, natural look, or you can choose mint green Mother of Pearl leaf beads.
The birch bark "leaves" are 2 inches (5 cm) long and 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide at their widest point.
These would make wonderful Teacher appreciation gifts, birthday gifts for your sister or Hippie Aunt, or just great natural boho jewelry for yourself.
Your earrings will ship in a lovely organza pouch, or you can upgrade to a gift box when checking out.
