I create these Manatee earrings from copper sheet. After I cut out their shape I hammer and form them then use a homemade patina to add color. I seal them with wax to protect the patina and add surgical steel hypo- allergenic earwires. I can make these into posts or clip- ons. Choose in product options. I live on a canal in Florida where the Manatees come to play in my backyard so I love to make them. These Manatees measure from the curve of the earwire: 1+1/2"long by 1+1/2" wide.
