This pair of shrink plastic earrings might have been called the experiment that could have gone wrong. Fortunately, it went exactly right but I won't ever be able to duplicate them! The skulls are approx 1.5"X1.5" and are hand wrapped with copper wire on copper ear wires. They hang approx 2.5" from the ear wire. They are brown in color, highlighted with gold and are crackled. The backsides are more of a gold color. They have been varnished and cover with dimension glaze for protection. Just perfect!
