Beautiful little gourd earrings made from vintage Czech glass beads that resemble the sacred calabash gourd. Crowned with silver plated pewter and more luminous Czech glass, they hang from sterling plated brass leverback ear wires. They measure just shy of 2" long.
These earthy yet refined earrings are a celebration of the humble gourd-- sacred in many cultures as it has so many uses: medicine bag, rattle, canteen, pipe or flute. It's resemblance to the womb is not an accident!
