These twirled earrings are handmade in Mali, where Fulani women traditionally wore their riches in the form of gold earrings that they could carry at all times.
This modern adaptation shines in beautiful silver plating. The earrings are unique to Swahili Modern in 2016 and fair trade.
Small earrings measure 1"L x 0.5"W. Medium earrings measure 1.25"L x 0.5"W. Large earrings measures 2.5"L x 1"W. Because these are handcrafted items, each will vary slightly.
