I'll admit, weeds aren't generally my first choice for my jewelry. However, we were visiting what was (first) a very old one room school house then it later became the local Sunday school, where my mother in law basically grew up. Everything inside is primitive and frequently hand made, and fascinating! The grounds are unimproved except for a few trees. The main inhabitants are weeds. I stumbled (literally) over the ones featured in these earrings, and was impressed both with their intricate beauty and their hardiness (1: weed, 0: me).
The plants lie on a base of leaf green resin, and are magnified and well protected by layers of clear, durable resin. The settings are gold-plated brass, as are the ear wires. I would be glad to switch the wires for lever backs, stainless steel hypoallergenic, or clasp non-pierced, at no added cost. Just leave me a note when you check out. NOTE: these earrings are light, even though they look fairly heavy.
I attempt to convey as the colors as accurately as possible. Monitor settings and light play a big role in the viewing of these pendants so the colors may appear different in person.
The earrings will arrive at your doorstep in a pretty organza bag and well protected in bubble wrap. It will be mailed by USPS first class

Returns & exchanges
If you're not happy with the item, I will refund or exchange. I want you happy with my work. The purchased articles must be returned in the original package, in perfect condition, within 7 days of their receipt by you. Exchanges will be handled in the same manner as returns. The buyer must pay all return shipping costs.
I use no dyes or coloring in any flowers I use. This means that flowers may fade rapidly if exposed extensively to sunlight. Most flowers antique, or fade to a lovely cream color, over time. This can actually add to the beauty and value of the jewelry. Please note that exposing the jewelry to water for prolonged periods (i.e. bathing or swimming with the jewelry on) could have a markedly deleterious effect on the plant material.
