My earrings are made from maple wood and I paint them with iridescent acrylic paints.This pair of earrings has a Coptic/ Ethiopian Cross on it. The background is a dark brown wood and painted on top is an intricate cross in shimmery bronze and gold. The ear hooks and jump rings are made from gold plated surgical steel so you will not get any allergies!!!The approximate diameter of the wood is 5 cm. they are show stoppers!
