This lace jewelry is stunning and elegant. This delicate style of wearable art will make you stand out in a crowd. Each piece is personally designed to create a one of a kind, unique gift for yourself or someone special! I get big pieces of lace and cut out the shapes I like, and then I hand dye them in an hombre like fashion where the different tones of colors blend together seamlessly. Then I add my special/secret ingredient to stiffen the lace to the perfect degree, so that it is firm and will not lose its shape, but still soft enough to be slightly malleable. ( these lace art pieces are not waterproof so I do not recommend wearing them in water). Then I glue on Swarovski crystals in complementary colors to add hints of sparkle! All of the metal components are silver plated surgical steel, so you will not get an allergic reaction( most people are allergic to nickel, which these do not contain). This particular pair of earrings is cut into heart shapes and has been hand dyed in various shades of green with a hint of yellow. The total length of the earrings from the top of the ear wire is approximately 8cm. If you refer to the photos I have included a quarter in one of the shots to get a reference for size.
