Gryffons have been known throughout the world for millennia; legendary creatures with the forequarters, talons and wings of an eagle and the hindquarters of a lion. Known to represent both intelligence and strength during the Medieval and Renaissance eras, they have been used frequently in heraldic art and architecture throughout the centuries. These boldly elegant earrings are created from antiqued brass and adorned with brilliantly colored, oval glass stones in your choice of color. A tiny, pronged drop swings below.
Choose from multiple earring hook options (see last photo for hook pics). French earring hooks will arrive complete with clear rubber backs to provide a secure fit when worn. Choose your favorite hook, finish and color from the drop down boxes associated with this listing.
LENGTH with hook: 2.75" (7 cm)
This made-to-order earring design will be packaged and ready to post in approximately 1 - 5 business days.

NOTE TO MY LOVELY INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS ABOUT CUSTOMS: Please check with your country's custom office policies -- many countries charge a customs fee for merchandise purchased outside of the home country, and the thresholds vary for each country.

Rabbitwood & Reason cares about the environment!
A large, ductless fume hood (the same style used in professional science labs) is used inside the studio for paint and adhesive work which filters the air into clean, fresh air. This filtered, pure air is then recycled back into the studio instead of directing toxic chemicals through a pipe out into the environment. All of the packaging for Rabbitwood & Reason is 100% recycled; paper, jewelry boxes, tissue paper, shipping envelopes, bubble wrap, etc. I do not wish to contribute to the loss of our natural resources but serve as a means to celebrate nature.
