These earrings are hand-carved from balsa wood and plated with real 24kt gold-leaf. The backside is made from oxidised sterling silver with a butterfly back. The leaf metal is sealed with transparent varnish to prevent oxidising and excessive wear. However the colour might change over time and the leaf metal will wear off on the edges ( this is a normal occurrence since the metal layer is very thin) and I hope you embrace these changes as your unique jewellery piece "lives" with you.
Don't be fooled by the name! Weighing only 1 gram a piece these earrings are super comfortable to wear, you won't even know they're there!
size: 16mm in diameter

Please note: This piece is unique and will not be produced again.
To make sure your earrings stay with you for a long time, please do not wear in the shower / while swimming / avoid perfume, alcohol, etc
You can very (!) gently clean you earrings with a soft cloth and a little lukewarm water.
