Elina Kantha Earrings
Ethical, sustainable, and stylish jewelry made from lightweight hand-carved wooden beads and covered in repurposed Kantha and sari fabric.
Two linear strands of stacked Kantha beads hang from a brass hoop. The different-sized strands are finished with a larger bead, and the colorful Kantha beads are separated by gold metallic spacer beads. Exact colors and patterns will vary as they’re made from repurposed textiles.
Measures 2” long, with nickel-free and lead-free French ear wires.
Sustainably handmade by women artisans in India.
