These great GIRAFFE earrings are all HANDPAINTED on watercolor paper (and very lightweight), then coated for durability. The green bead on the bottom is copper , they hang about 2" long from stainless steel wires. They are water resistant, NOT waterproof. Each, being an artpiece, is signed. I also take custom orders and combine shipping on multiple purchases. Please visit my store for more: Cheetah Chick's Fun Art. My website is Be sure to add me to your favorites list !
