Diamond-shaped red cinnabar and black onyx bead earrings with gold-plated hoops and spacer beads. Drop measures approximately 1 1/2". Handcrafted in NYC.
Layers and layers of cinnabar lacquer are applied to carved wooden beads to create these lovely designs. Cinnabar is an ancient mineral that was first mentioned nearly 10,000 years ago. It was believed back then to have mystical, magical powers that could increase longevity.
