These earrings are made of brass.
These brass earrings are inspired by the pre-Hispanic motifs representing symbolically conch. This drawing specifically comes from the Maya area of Mexico. However, it is declined in many equivalent forms through the Mesoamerican cultures.
Generally, the conch was used as a musical instrument. It was used especially at the beginning of ceremonies to call the people. It is usually used to sound the start of a ritual, or for a wedding.
They are 5.5 cm long (2.165 inches).
The snail itself is 2.8 x 3.1 cm (1.102 x 1.220 inches).
As we currently dwell in Mexico, provide a period of 2 to 5 weeks to receive your order. Thank you for taking this information into account before ordering in our shop (please, read the complete conditions of shipping here).

I hope you will love this jewel as much as I enjoyed creating it.
