Maker :: Chickenscratch
These cleverly mismatched earrings feature a sleeping nickel silver hare resting on a blue enamel painted brass pillow with a dangling, twitching leg. The tortoise is made from oxidized and enamel painted brass and has free swinging legs implying speedy movement! Both are fabricated, silver soldered and cold connected with sterling silver earwires.
Dimensions: 1.5" length; 0.5"/0.75" width (tortoise/hare)
