The high-quality natural cork used to make these earrings was hand-harvested from trees that are only harvested every nine years, and then was stacked to dry and transported to the manufacturing factory. The cork was then steamed in water and flattened, and the cork that is not used for wine bottles was compressed into a thick cork fabric roll.
The strands of cork used to make these earrings were cut from a thin slice of the cork fabric. It may just look like simple strands of cork, but an unimaginable amount of time and positive energy has gone into creating these handcrafted earrings.
These drop earrings from Artelusa are made from a button-sized piece of natural or colored cork with a silver plated backing and hook.
