Medieval Manuscript Decorative Border Earrings

| /

Every Christmas my parents sent cards with a Christmas scene from a medieval manuscript.  All have wonderful decorative borders that I thought would make charming earrings!   I made this pair of earrings from a card showing a scene of Noah's Ark from a 15th century French manuscript.   

The backs are painted in a bright gold mica paint.  Both sides are protected with several coats of resin. 

The tiny ice pick bails and French Hook earwires are gold-plated brass.

Total length:  1 9/16 inches

Bead size:    7/8 inch long by 9/16 inch wide
