These earrings are handmade in Ireland using ethically sourced beads from Ghana, crafted by the Krobo tribe. They are made from the recycled glass of medicine and beverage bottles using a ceramic mold and a furnace. These beads have beads created this way for centuries. Beads still play important roles in Krobo society, be it in rituals of birth, coming of age, marriage, or death. Each bead is unique and has a chunky, frosted, semi-translucent appearance - like ice. Each piece comes with a card outlining the story. The brass beads were cast and made in Ghana also.
The earwires are gold filled.
What is 'Gold Filled'? Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold!
