Lucite lilies are hand dyed in shades of subtle lavender that graduates into a soft shade of poppyseed. The lily is then treated with a shimmering lavender color on the outside, giving it a vintage feel. Twisting filigree bead caps are given several layers of deep plum patina and highlights in lemons and apricots with a very small paintbrush. A mini bead cap draws the eye to the pop of color at the top of the flower. Dangling out from beneath the lily are little tumbled stones of yellow calcite and rutiliated quartz. Along side of these stones are brass dangles and dark brown disc shell.
Length is measured from the highest point of the earwire to the longest point at the bottom of the earring. Copper earwires adorn this pair of earrings. All painted metal is sealed.
