Red & yellow Pysanka earrings
These earrings are made from the shells of a Ukrainian Easter Egg (Pysanka). They feature small details from a traditional geometric design, in red, orange and yellow. The original Pysanka from which these pieces of shell came was broken, which can be seen in some of the surface and edge imperfections. The epoxy clay in which the shell is set serves to stabilize and protect the egg shell, giving it strength and durability. The laquer over top of the shell preserves the designed portion. The bezel setting and earwires are plated in an antique brass tone.  The crystal dangle adds a delicate, decorative touch.

Materials: lead-free & nickel-free plated metal; epoxy clay; egg shell; clear lacquer; glass crystal beads

Measurements: 1 cm diameter (1/2 inch diameter); total length with earwire = 4.5 cm (1 3/4 inches)
