I've read that Watermelon Chevron trade beads were valuable and commonly used for trading purposes in West Africa. Since then they are still valuable and used to create beautiful items like these earrings. I used off white/beige shiny cowrie shell combined with the brown striped watermelon chevron bead to create these beautiful, light weight dangle earrings. I accented these earrings with a faceted sterling silver bead at the top that adds plenty of sparkle. I hand wired these earrings with sterling silver and hung on sterling silver french ear wires. The total length is 2 1/4 inch long. These earrings will be a lovely accent to your jewelry collection.
I take my own photos and do capture a good likeness. Colors may vary due to lighting. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

I make all of my pieces myself and once I receive materials for the designing of my jewelry I am the only one who handles them. I take great care in the designing and in making each piece. Before I ship out every piece I inspect every item and proceed to package and ship with care. Thank you much!
