These earrings are bright and fun!!! They are made from acrylic paint on maple wood and have gold plated surgical steel ear wires. The background is airbrushed in red, gold and green colors and on top i painted the outline of africa in bright gold. I also used shimmery copper paint for accents. I put a clear coat of acrylic on top to protect them from chipping. They are extremely lightweight and fun. Approximate diameter is 6 cm.
