African Padauk and Silver Inlay Domino Earrings
African padauk, also known as Vermillion, is an exotic hardwood from central and tropical southwest Africa. Its deep orange red color is amazing when paired with metal inlay – in this case, sterling silver inlay in a dot formation that is inspired by the wood’s “domino” shape.
The wood rectangles hang from opposite corners – which give movement and a bit of asymmetry. They really draw the eye when worn!
The earrings have sterling silver, hand-forged ear wires.
- Length of earrings: 1 3/4″
- Dimensions of wood: 1″ long x 3/4″ wide
All my wood jewelry is sealed with wax for a fine shine and protection.
My work is handmade, using recycled materials whenever possible, and incorporating/re-using gemstones and vintage pieces.
