These sweet and simple earrings are inspired by the autumnal oak leaves in my neighborhood. Textured and metallic gold-colored paper oak leaves are mounted on black, matt paper. The edges are hand painted in gold ink. The backs of the earrings are the same black, matt paper as the front. Hypoallergenic silver-colored posts.
The earrings measure 1 1/4" L by 5/8" W.
Gold textured paper, black matt paper, hypoallergenic silver-colored posts
This paper is strong and durable. If it becomes soiled, quickly and gently wipe it with a barely moist, soft cloth.
