Small oval brown & black Pysanka earrings
These petite earrings are made from the shells of a Ukrainian Easter Egg (Pysanka). They feature details from a traditional geometric design, on a brown egg with black background. 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.

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