My earrings are made from maple wood and I paint them with iridescent acrylic paints.This pair of earrings has a tree design on it. The background wood is stained dark brown and painted on top is a shimmery bronze trunk with shimmery gold leaves. 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!
