These Snake earrings are really lightweight and easy to wear, measuring 2.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. The Snakes have a stainless steel nickel free ball post. I get so many compliments on my snake earrings, they are very unique and eye catching! These earrings are handpainted with pastel pink, green and purple stripes. The Snake earrings are made from cut up pieces of abstract art painted in my home studio. They are then covered with several layers of resin over a period of several days and then sanded and drilled.
