Yāl Butterfly Copper and Naturally Dyed Palmyra Earrings
Light but not fragile. Like leather, but vegan. Inspired by nature and innovating upon the vintage craftsmanship of copper smithing, basket weaving and natural dying, these copper and Palmyra fiber earrings lend an elegant bohemian twist to any ensemble.
Turmeric, Vermilion, Myrobalan nut, Jackfruit seed and Palmyra palm leaves are some of the precious organic materials handwoven into each pair of earrings.
