These small dangle earrings feature shells that the designer collected from the shores of Sanibel Island, FL. The shells have been carefully wrapped in wire and are completely secured in place. The shells will not be identical matches but will be approximately the same in size and color. They make a great gift or souvenir for divers or anyone who loves the ocean. The wire used in the making of these earrings is a steel-based wire that has been plated with silver and gold toned metals. The wire contains no nickel, lead, or cadmium.
