Every bead on these earrings is hand stitched. They are made with black and amber beads surrounded by black seed beads. The diameter of the earrings is 1" with a 1/2" hole in the center. They are strung on a brushed gold lever back style hook that is made from base metal. (They are not real gold or gold plated.) I also include a free handmade jewelry bag with every jewelry purchase. I don't charge for shipping within the 48 continental United States. If you live outside of that area, please message me and I can give you an estimate on shipping costs. Thanks for shopping!
