Brazilian Capim Vegetable Gold Grass Double Spiral Earrings
A beautiful pair of golden grass (Capim) earrings, hand made in Brazil by Sao Paulo artisans.
These beautiful earrings are hand-made from Capim, a grass found in the northeast of Brazil. The grass has the amazing quality of being a totally natural vivid gold colour, and is often known as 'Oro Vegetal' - 'vegetable gold'. It is difficult to portray the beauty of Capim in photographs, but it has a unique glow which really sets it apart from conventional metallic gold.
The grass is woven together in a variety of designs, each one more unusual than the other. They are very lightweight and measure about 35mm from top to bottom and 25mm across.
There is also a range of necklaces made from this wonderful natural material coming soon!
