Art Deco Leaf Earrings

Add a natural motif with a splash of shine to your wardrobe with the Art Deco Leaf Earrings from Cambodia. These earrings, made from recycled brass bomb casing, are distinctive enough to draw attention with their pull-through style, yet simple enough to match nearly any outfit.
