I make these drop earrings by wire wrapping 8 mm black lava rock beads with silver plated wire. Wear these earrings as is or add a drop of your favorite scent or essential oil to the bead for aromatherapy. The ear wires are nickel-free hypo-allergenic surgical steel and they are safe for anyone with metal allergies. These earrings measure 1-1/4" including the ear wires. They're the perfect length for casual wear. Your jewelry will be shipped in a beautiful organza bag, ready for gift giving. Dark blue and turquoise lava rock bead earrings are also available...please click on my picture or the One Sky Creations logo to go to my shop to do a search.
