These are a collaborative effort between Lyle & Toni. They are made from shrink plastic. Lyle hand-carved the nautilus stamp with is approx 5"X5", then it was inked and stamped onto the shrink plastic, then shrunk, varnished and coated with dimensional glaze. Wooo! The connection to the lever back ear wire is hand wrapped. They are really distinctive looking earrings and would look great with that little black dress or a black & white summer ensemble. There is also a set listed with a matching necklace.
