This listing is for one pair of handmade larch tree root earrings. The roots were coated in resin for preservation and durability. The resin also brings out all the different, beautiful grooves and coloring in the larch roots. The roots are attached to the drops with a gold filled wire circle, which adds elegance to the design.
These earrings are long, but have a surprisingly light wear. The larch trees can only be found in alpine regions. Their form is corky and curvy, with roots poking in and out of mountain rock. As the harsh weather whips through the alpines, the trees release certain sections of their roots and any limbs they get damaged. The whole entire tree looks like a coil. I noticed these little forgotten sections of roots during my hiking breaks and found them to be very beautiful.
The ear wire is surgical steel.
