Zebra Earrings, African Batik Beads Red Coral Handmade Animal Jewelry

Item Description

If you love the animals of Africa, especially elegant zebras, then these unique handmade earrings with a definite tribal flair are perfect for you.  The boho, one of a kind ZEBRA STRIPES earrings feature artisan hand cast, lead free pewter charms with a raised zebra design. The textured charms were given a dark rustic patina and then polished to bring out the intricate detailing of the zebra.  The back of the charms were left a very dark gray patina.
Stacked above each zebra charm are dark brown and white striped African batik beads, each individually handmade from cow bone by artists in Ghana.  As you can see in the photos, the batik beads are very similar but not exactly the same. Blazing red coral discs top the batik bone beads to add a pop of intense color to the earrings.  On top of pewter daisy spacers sit yellow and black striped African Christmas glass trade beads, each also individually handmade. A red Christmas glass trade bead was added to the sterling silver earwires to finish the ethnic earrings.  Created for the woman who adores one of a kind jewelry with a boho beat, the ZEBRA STRIPES earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

Zebras are said to help teach us the importance of individuality and that the steps we take each day is part of the great journey to make our dreams a reality.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality. Bone is said to bring good fortune and strength. Red Coral is used to help calm life, to restore harmony in the event of an emotional conflict.  Even though man made, glass and crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The ZEBRA STRIPES artisan handmade earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
