About Ada - Long Shield Earrings
Drawing on African heritage and craftsmanship, each bead that makes up Ada's Earrings is hand rolled by the women of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. Using raw clay, the beads are sun dried, kiln fired and dip dyed ensuring no two are the same. Earrings are made with sterling silver posts. Other metal components are made from blushed gold plated or sterling silver plated brass.
Please remember your beads won’t be perfect circles and the colours may vary. Because the beads are porous, some will absorb the dye more than others. We have chosen to hand brush our metal to create the textured, imperfect aesthetic we strive for.
