Little Birds earrings photo illustration by D.J. Freshie, a collaboration between Bijou Graphique and artist Jenny Mendes. These earrings are sharp with their black, and white palette, the illustration features two birds (with feather on top!) on a tree branch. These look as great at a distance as up close. From a distance the illustration looks like a graceful leaf design. The image is incased in cast sterling silver and the frame is highlighted with Freshwater Pearls and onyx beads.
The images used in these earrings are originally painted on one of a kind plates. They are then photographically copied and printed in miniature on archival paper. The images are set into sterling silver settings, sealed with an optical quality, shatterproof polycarbonate plastic, and accented with freshwater pearls and semi-precious gemstones.
The jewelry is not waterproof and should be handled carefully. The protective plexiglass surface may be cleaned with a tiny amount of rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip.
These hang 1 ¾ of an inch from the ear including the sterling silver ear wire and are ½ inch wide.
