African Trade Batik Bone and Black Horn Silver Earrings
These earthy ethnic inspired earrings are designed with 10mm Black and White African Batik Bone Beads and 12 x 38mm Black Horn Pelinut Beads. There are pewter Crown Heishi Beads added and all are hung on my handcrafted Silver Filled Ear wires. These African Trade bead earrings measure 3 1/4" from the top of the ear wires.
Batik beads are made of bone and are handmade in Africa using an ancient technique. Wax is painted onto the bead to create a design, then the surface is dyed with a vegetable dye. Once the dye is set, the wax is removed showing the resulting design and is reminiscent of the African fabric known as mudcloth.
