These earrings feature blue glass beads from my personal collection, as well as hand punched beads made from water bottle lids.
The hoops are white gold filled, which means they have a thicker layer of gold than gold plated hoops. Gold fill is not solid gold, but is the next best alternative. While gold filled jewelry can still tarnish, with proper care, gold filled jewelry can last a lifetime.

These are considered costume jewelry and should be kept in dry areas when not being worn (so don't keep them in the bathroom or kitchen, don't go swimming in them, don't wear them while dancing in the rain, etc.)
Spraying chemicals on or near costume jewelry may speed up the "antiquing" of metal - for instance, perfumes, hair spray, make-up setting sprays. To help keep your jewelry vibrant, use all sprays prior to putting on jewelry.
The plastic beads used in these earrings were sourced and created from trash collected during beach and street clean-ups. All plastics are cleaned and sanitized before use. A portion of our profits are donated to environmental conservation efforts. The sale of these earrings also helps to fund the direct clean-up of thousands of pieces and pounds of plastic trash, as well as helping to fund environmental education efforts.
IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION:
We ship every Friday. All items purchased before 12:00 PM central time on Tuesday afternoon are shipped that Friday. All items purchased after 12 noon (central time) on Tuesday will ship by the next Friday (approximately 10 business days later).
International shipping starts at $15. Because we are currently unable to calculate a shipping price for every single location in the world, international shipping works as follows: There is a $15 shipping charge for international orders. Once your order is received, we will calculate shipping based on your exact location. If the actual shipping charge is within $1.00 of the $15, we will ship your item as is. If the shipping charge is more than $1 more or less than the $15 shipping charge, we will refund the difference OR send an invoice for the remainder due. If you do not agree with the updated shipping charge, we will glady refund your order. We are unfortunately not able to offer insurance or tracking on international shipments. While we are excited about being able to offer international shipping, we know that once a package leaves our country, it's completely out of our hands. Please keep that in mind when ordering.
