These stunning earrings feature genuine Ethiopian medicine bones, used for healing and to ward off evil spirits. These are hand-carved, including the small circles you see in the photographs. The circles represent eyes intended to protect the wearer from all manner of evil. The ear wire is gold-filled (not plated). Since each bone is unique, the sizes are not identical, making these perfect for those who love telling more than one story with a single pair of earrings. This is a one-of-a-kind piece, so you are wearing an original work of art.
