These earrings are made in California from sustainable wood purchased from Certified FSC suppliers.  Crisscrossed very thin and strong multi layered wood gives the earrings amazing strength while also making them extremely lightweight. The wood is stained with water based dye.  Ear wires are silver-finished 304L stainless steel, hypoallergenic, and enhanced with a new, smooth and consistent electrophoretic coating that resists tarnishing.
