Hand-crafted earrings featuring found shells, tanned hide, and Kingman turquoise accents. Larger shells are accented by small dentalium drops, nestled between copper-colored glass and tanned elk hide at the very top. Drops of Kingman turquoise and shards of mother-of-pearl add beautiful accent colors to a one-of-a-kind set.
