These hand carved Seahorse Earrings are made for us, by a family in Indonesia. They're made of bone & are a Key West exclusive, at Local Luxe. Believe it or not, they're light as air & easy to wear, because they weigh about nothing & they're not really a gauge. They're an easy to wear, hypoallergenic post! And, what a great price, for all that carving! Glad I didn't have to do that!
