African Blackwood & Pink Ivory Wood Disk Earrings - BaobArt
Handmade by members of a cooperative in Mozambique, these surprisingly lightweight earrings carved from African Blackwood are inlaid with a rare 'Pink Ivory Wood' only found in parts of Africa and white wood. The woodworking is superb, making the earrings a work of art. The earrings are 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
