These earrings are hand stitched and contain over 200 beads per earring. There is a base layer of lavender delicas (cylinder) beads with a scalloped edge. The second layer is a combination of white seed beads and lavender delicas and a third layer consists of 13 white seed beads with a white opal crystal placed in the middle. The diameter of the earrings is 7/8". They are strung on a lever back style hook that is silver base metal. (They are not real silver or silver plated.)
