These earrings are bright and fun!!! They are made from acrylic paint on maple wood and come with gold plated surgical steel ear hooks. The background is stained brown and on top I painted the continent of Africa in red, yellow and green- reggae colors. I also use shimmery gold 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 4 cm.
